It may be the smallest state in the country, but Rhode Island offers plenty of coastal resorts, city excitement and beautiful parks to please any traveler. Whether you are looking for a quiet getaway or some urban nightlife, Rhode Island has just what you are looking for. Come to Rhode Island for your next vacation, and check out some of the great vacation destinations, from Providence to Newport to Block Island.
Block Island is a tiny island off the coast of Rhode Island that offers a quiet retreat for vacationers. Only seven miles long and three miles wide, most of Block Island can be seen in an afternoon, including its one museum, wildlife refuge and handful of lighthouses. When you aren't relaxing on the island's beautiful beaches, there are plenty of opportunities to bike, hike and enjoy fabulous seafood dishes at some of the island's fine dining establishments.
If you appreciate architectural wonders, head to Newport, which is famous for its beautiful mansions, many of which were built in the nineteenth century. Newport is a fairly small town, so when sightseeing, it is best to leave your car behind. Most of the attractions are within walking distance to the hotels, and parking can be difficult and expensive. Particularly impressive in Newport is Marble House, which was built for William and Alva Vanderbilt. The $11 million home was constructed from seven different types of marble. Another magnificent site is Belcourt Castle, which was built for Cornelius Vanderbilt II, the grandson of railroad tycoon Commodore Vanderbilt.
