Exeter is country living at its finest, but it is located within close proximity to the more suburban and urban areas of Rhode Island as well. While Exeter is synonymous with New England countryside, farms, and forests, the town also neighbors the beautiful beaches of North Kingstown. With just a 15-minute drive, you can enjoy a sunny afternoon digging your toes into the sand or kayaking in one of the multiple harbors. For the rare moments when you might miss a lively city environment, Providence and Warwick are both less than a 30-minute drive away.

Family-owned restaurants and breweries are mainstays of Exeter’s close-knit community, with comfort-food favorites that include Homestead Restaurant and Tilted Barn Brewery.

In addition to its delicious food, Exeter has an incredibly rich history for such a small town. Tomequag Museum is the only solely Native American museum in all of Rhode Island and offers an immersive, educational experience from a first-person perspective. Visitors can take exclusive private or group tours, participate in classes and workshops, and even commit to youth and adult programs that engage the community and educate them about our nation’s indigenous culture!

Although quaint and quiet, Exeter manages to have moments of excitement. The town is home to Yawgoo Valley Ski Area & Water Park, the only ski resort in Rhode Island and one of the most southernmost skiing areas in all of New England.
