From its bayside municipalities of Warwick and East Greenwich to its western communities of Coventry and West Greenwich that border Connecticut, the Central Region is a key connector for the state.
In addition to numerous beaches and Goddard State Park, the eastern side features the state’s only international airport that also serves as a multi-modal hub as well as major roadways that comprise a substantial commercial shopping corridor. Former mill villages throughout West Warwick and eastern Coventry are reminiscent of the state’s early textile industry and now provide housing in their renovated mills. Representative of the region’s forested western portion is the University of Rhode Island’s Alton Jones Campus with its 2,300 acres of forests, lakes and farmlands, beyond which sits some of the state’s large patches of unfragmented forest.
