Rhode Island

Overview

Rhode Island is the smallest of the fifty US states but boasts the highest concentration of historic landmarks and buildings in the entire country.

Newport is one of the great maritime cities of the world. It is best known for its opulent estates and mansions many of which are open to the public. America’s wealthiest families such as the Vanderbilts and the Astors built ‘summer cottages’ here that rival imperial palaces! There are also seagoing mansions (called yachts!) — and some of the worlds most splendid call Newport home.

Take a harbour cruise, visit the International Tennis Hall of Fame, see the America’s Cup Museum and explore the plentiful art galleries. No trip to Newport would be complete without a stroll along the spectacular 3 mile Cliff Walk which begins at Easton’s Beach and runs along Newport’s cliffs. The allure and charm of this unique seaside playground, with its art and jazz festivals, excellent restaurants, historic sites and museums, lively harbour front, scenic vistas, and refreshing sea breezes all combine to create a most memorable and enjoyable experience.

With a thriving arts community, vibrant and diverse neighbourhoods and a renowned restaurant scene, Providence is the perfect place to visit. The city’s compact size and convenient location make it easy to get to and hard to forget. Nearby Warwick offers bountiful shopping and 39 miles of coastline, while the scenic beauty and rich history of Rhode Island’s other regions are a quick drive away. Historic and hip, sophisticated and small–town, Providence packs the best of New England into one convenient and colourful package.
