Best Rhode Island Vacations

Love the beach? Love history? Then you'll love Rhode Island. Full of old beach towns, you'll be just as charmed by the colonial architecture as you are the coastline. Enjoy our guide to Rhode Island vacations.


This Rhode Island beach town oozes charm. Surfing and sport fishing are mainstays here, as there are four great Atlantic Ocean beaches to choose from. To get to know the area, make sure to visit Narragansett's most notable landmarks, the Point Judith Lighthouse and the event center the Towers , formerly the the Narragansett Pier Casino, which burned down. As far as its beaches go, Scarborough Beach is the most beloved, and has been for decades.


Newport was a favorite summer vacation spot among the elites, like President Eisenhower. And since it was founded in 1639, its homes not only were frequented by famous politicians, but by colonists, too. Whether you're on a walking tour, exploring sites like the Christopher Columbus Statue and Monument , the Castle Hill Lighthouse , or the Belcourt Castle , or you're strolling along the beautiful beaches, you're sure to have a relaxing time here.


For more peaceful Rhode Island vacations head to Charlestown, and get away from the summer crowds of Newport and Narragansett, This beach town is just as rich with natural beauty and New England history as others, but offers up a bit more privacy. Besides playing on and relaxing by the ocean, the Fantastic Umbrella Factory - a collection of local shops - and the Ninigret National Wildlife Refuge and Kettle Pond Visitors Center are well worth a visit. 

Other popular spots for Rhode Island vacations include the coastal cities of South Kingston and Watch Hill.
