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