The town of South Kingstown was established in 1658 and incorporated as a town in 1723. It is located approximately 30 miles from Providence and is Rhode Island's largest town in land area. South Kingstown borders the Atlantic Ocean and is a summer resort destination for its beautiful sandy beaches. Many salt water marches, farmlands and woodlands belong to this area. Many of the residents refer to the town as "Wakefield". In fact, Wakefield, Kingston, Peace Dale, West Kingston, Green Hill, Matunuck, Snug Harbor, Middlebridge, Perryville, Usequepaugh, Tuckertown, and Indian Lake are villages located within the Town of South Kingstown.

Situated on the Saugatucket River, downtown Wakefield offers a variety of shops and gourmet restaurants.
