Jamestown, Rhode Island

The quiet coastal town of Jamestown is situated on Conanicut Island in Narragansett Bay, just a mile west of Newport.

The area has kept much of its original charm and has more of a rural village feel with farms, a windmill, and cows grazing on lush green pastures. Narragansett Avenue is the main shopping street here.

This town is also well known for the outstanding food markets serving fresh meats and locally caught seafood like cod and lobster. Head over to the beach at Mackerel Cove, go paddleboarding at sunset, or enjoy the charming views of the sailboats docked in Narragansett Bay.
