Do not miss
For such a small state, “Little Rhody” is packed with tourist attractions. At the end of the 19th, beginning 20th century the super-rich chose Newport as a playground to build their fabled mansions and palaces. Breakers, Newport’s most celebrated mansion, was built by Cornelius Vanderbilt in 1895. Providence grew rich on different kinds of lucrative trade. Benefit Street is the most famous street in Rhode Island. Waterplace Park & Riverwalk, once completely covered by roadways, are now lit by bonfires floating in the river. Sailing and most particularly the America’s Cup race is deeply ingrained in the state’s culture, visiting Bristol’s Hall of Fame is a must. Head for the town of Narragansett if long stretches of fine white sand beckon you.
