Rhode Island

The State of Rhode Island maybe small but there is plenty to see and do. In true New England style, the state boasts a long Atlantic coastline, dotted with historic lighthouses and upmarket marinas. See the spectacular autumn foliage or immerse yourself in the rural charms of the apple farms. Those with a passion for history will find an extensive list of attractions from lavish mansions to submarines.
The Rhode Island coastline stretches for 400 miles. There are plenty of sandy beaches and coastal walking paths to enjoy. Narragansett Bay is a paradise for water sports enthusiasts. Popular with the sailing community, you can also try fishing or sea kayaking here. For animal encounters, take a whale or seal-watching trip from the quayside.
Rhode Island is a state that takes history seriously. Be amazed by the sumptuous interiors at The Breakers, a lavish summer mansion built for the Vanderbilt family in the 19th century. Visit the Old State House, in Providence, which was the setting for a revolutionary declaration against King George III in 1776. Finally, for a taste of a simpler life, come to Dame Farm where you will see how country folk lived off the land in days gone by.
Maritime history is in abundance along the salty shore of Rhode Island. The Rose Island Lighthouse tells the tale of the harsh life of the lighthouse keeper and his family. In Providence, feel the chill inside the Russian Submarine Juliett-484 and in Newport, celebrate champions from yesteryear at the Museum of Yachting.
