Jamestown is an island just a 5 minute scenic ride from Newport over the Newport Bridge. But a more fun way to get to Jamestown is by taking the Jamestown-Newport Ferry from one of 3 spots in Newport. You can hop on and off the ferry to explore various attractions including the Rose Island Lighthouse. Jamestown has some great shops and restaurants along with some beautiful parks. Walk across the street to East Ferry Deli or up Narragansett to Slice of Heaven for lunch or coffee and pastry. Our favorite place to walk and catch a sunset in Jamestown is Beavertail State Park. Wear sneakers as you will likely want to walk along the rocks to enjoy the amazing views. You can also tour the Beavertail lighthouse museum. Fort Wetherill is another favorite place to walk.

We've all experienced the euphoria that washes over you at the beginning of a vacation to somewhere new - a little town or village tucked away in a sweet corner of the region. You pick up the real estate digests stacked at store entrances; you linger in front of the fliers posted in agency windows.
