Wednesday, June 19, 2013


What is the best thing about Jamestown?

With its small Main Street area hosting a handful of restaurants and bars, Jamestown is another Rhode Island slice of heaven. An island that has developed into a residential area, this enchanting region lies in the middle of Narragansett Bay. As you head toward the Newport Tolls, cast one look down that tidy Main Street, or hop off before leaving Conanicut Island to ogle some of the most beautiful properties in the entire state.
