AQUIDNECK ISLAND NAMED 6TH BEST ISLAND IN THE U.S. BY THE READERS OF CONDÉ NAST

Adirondack II Newport RI Sunset

Here’s what they had to say about us:

The largest island in Narragansett Bay is where you’ll find Newport, one of our RCA-approved “best small cities in America,” lined with elegant Gilded Age mansions straight out of an Edith Wharton novel. The City by the Sea is also a center for sailing.

Pro tip: The Newport Jazz Festival, held in August each year, has played host to countless musical greats—Duke Ellington, Nina Simone, and John Coltrane, to name just a few. Pay a visit during the summer to see the next big thing in jazz.

Getting there: Drive to Aquidneck Island from Providence, only about 40 minutes away.

Hall of Fame Tennis Championships

Just after Wimbledon each year, top ATP World Tour pros head to Newport to compete in the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships, the first stop of the summer swing for pro tennis in the United States. Contested on the historic grass tennis courts of the International Tennis Hall of Fame, the tournament is the only event played on grass courts outside of Europe, and it offers the only opportunity to see professional men’s tennis in the Northeast prior to the US Open.
