Why choose Rhode Island?
Rhode Island may be the smallest state but what it may lack in size our seaside state makes up in history, beauty, and splendor. Rhode Island features some of New England's finest culture- rich experiences from sea to table dining, historic mansion tours, world class sailing excursions, and artistic abundance, not to mention breathtaking waterfront event venues. Being a small state affords our destination the convenience and ability to experience the best of the coast in only a few short days.
Rhode Island is perhaps best known for the charming town of Newport located on Aquidneck Island and surrounded by Gilded Age historic and classic, modern amenities. Just a 40 minute ride north of Newport is Providence, the state’s capitol and vibrant center for the arts. The same distance south, you’ll discover a host of unique agricultural experiences tucked away in the well preserved Westerly/Watch Hill area, perfect for a day trip or afternoon excursion.
Whether you spend a day in Newport or a week in this seaside state, our destination promises to host an unforgettable experience for your guests.
Newport has drawn visitors internationally for decades thanks to its cultural, historical, and scenic landscape. Visitors to the area enjoy coastal charm, Gilded Age elegance, a community of culinary experts, sailing, and unique-to-Newport tours and outings - all centrally located along the coast. Known as 'the Sailing Capital of the World' and the 'City by the Sea', Newport offers group activities amidst a breathtaking backdrop suited for a truly first-class experience.
Combining the accessibility and friendliness of a small town with the culture and sophistication of a big city, Providence packs the best of New England into one convenient and colorful package. The State's Capitol features a thriving arts community, vibrant and historic neighborhood architecture, and a renowned culinary scene.
