Top Reasons to Go

Mansions: See how the one-percenters lived during Newport's Gilded Age with a tour of Cornelius Vanderbilt's opulent 70-room "summer cottage" known as The Breakers.

Historic Street: Follow along Benefit Street on Providence's East Side for a mile of history and see ornate homes built by leading Colonial merchants.

Nature: Block Island is one of the most serene spots on the Eastern Seaboard, especially at Rodman's Hollow, a glacial outwash basin, where winding paths lead to the sea.

Sand: Take your pick from South County's numerous sugary-white beaches, including Scarborough State Beach in Narragansett.

Food Enclave: From food trucks to upscale dining, Providence has an exciting culinary scene fueled in large part by young Johnson & Wales University-trained chefs.
