Jamestown is the town on Conanicut Island, 9 square miles in size. Modern bridges connect the island to Newport in the east, and to mainland Rhode Island in the west – all located due south of Providence. This affluent community was once a playground of the wealthy – featuring several large, luxurious seaside hotels in the early 1900s – an era that ended with the Great Depression in the 1920s. Today, this upscale town is home to families and small businesses, restaurants and inns, parks, farms, marinas, and ocean view condos – and a very nice 9-hole golf course!
This area is a popular for sailors, swimmers, and all manner of water-sports enthusiasts – as well as those who want to relax in sight, sound or smell of the sea. 400 miles of shoreline explain Rhode Island’s nickname, “The Ocean State!” Recreational opportunities are all around – golf, hiking and biking are as popular as boating – along with plenty of ways to simply chill, and enjoy life.
Neighboring Newport is a historic resort city with 25,000 people and an impressive collection of vintage estates and charming mansions. Tourists come for the architecture, to see the picturesque lighthouses, and for the summer Jazz Festival, and the beautiful beaches.
Choose among many safe, family-oriented communities in the area and enjoy the best of coastal living with excellent schools and welcoming neighborhoods. Enjoy cuisine ranging from local seafood to international fare, from paper-plate casual to the most elegant white linen. Local shopping includes everything from high-end antiques to outlet malls.
Rhode Island’s capital, Providence, is “the Creative Capital” – home to several prominent universities, and a thriving arts community with an award-winning theater and a philharmonic orchestra, all just 40 minutes north of Jamestown. A 90-minute drive takes you to Boston for the theatre, ballet or world championship sports with the Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins or Patriots… or to the sparkly casinos of Connecticut… or to Cape Cod, for a peaceful day of fishing, sailing or antiquing. New York City is a 3-hour drive from Jamestown.
