Small in size but with 400 miles of coastline, a plethora of Gilded Age mansions, world-class sailing and prestigious universities, Rhode Island is an elegant, refined spot with the charm of a bygone era. Perched on Newport’s coast, grand mansions call to mind The Great Gatsby, while the hip coffee shops and bars of Providence usher in a more cosmopolitan period.
Head out on waters that have played host to the America’s Cup and sail past Bellevue mansions and miles of glorious beaches, explore the cobbled streets and historic charm of Providence’s old town and try to avoid the green-eyed monster as you tour Newport’s breathtaking mansions.
