A hotspot for yachting enthusiasts and those seeking a plush holiday by the sea, Newport’s coast is framed by the glorious 19th-century mansions of America’s elite. Nose around the underground tunnels and stables of The Breakers, Vanderbilt’s iconic 70-room mansion; and enjoy a cocktail on the lawn at palatial Marble House’s Chinese Tea House. Head to Fort Adams to see President Eisenhower’s summer White House, Sachuest Beach for surfing, King’s Beach for scuba diving and Newport Harbour for a luxury sailing trip around Narragansett Bay aboard an America’s Cup yacht.
Capital city Providence is a food lover’s dream with a swanky restaurant scene, art-house theatres and a charming small-city culture. Home to Ivy League Brown University, Rhode Island School of Design (open to the public) and the magnificent John Brown House museum, Providence is a handsome college city filled with independent boutiques, historical architecture and culinary gems. We recommend dining at chef Benjamin Sukle’s modern American Birch and checking out the unique blazing bonfires at WaterFire Festival if visiting in the summer months.
From the mainland, it’s worth taking a ferry across to the tiny and fiercely protected Block Island, where songbirds migrate, islanders prefer cycling to cars and you can enjoy the slow rhythm of a relaxed ‘white picket fence’ lifestyle where clamming, bird watching, kayaking and fishing are de rigueur.
In contrast to the state’s striking mountain landscapes are the secluded beaches and beautiful barrier islands of its 300-mile coast. As well as popular family resorts and untouched stretches of white sand, the region boasts historic port cities and towns, landmark lighthouses and wrecked ships that are now popular dive sites. Sun-seekers can relax on some of the world’s best beaches at the Outer Banks, whose untouched islands are home to herds of wild horses that descend from Spanish mustangs brought to the area in the 1500s. Surfers should head to Cape Hatteras for some of the east coast’s best breaks, while aviation enthusiasts can visit the Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kill Devil Hills, commemorating the local aviation pioneers who built the world’s first airplane and made the world’s first flight.
Glamorous Rhode Island may have all the yachts, Lamborghinis and lobster breakfasts you can handle, but it also has that refreshing sound of the surf, alongside nature’s gift of 400 miles of shimmering sandy coastline and a sense of peace and tranquility that’s hard to beat.
