Vacation Rentals in Rhode Island

A Wonderful New England destination

Rhode Island is known (and loved) for its picturesque colonial-style towns, pale sandy beaches, and overall idyllic atmosphere. Perhaps the best feature of this charmingly small northeastern state is that you really can see it all! The entire state stretches just 48 miles from North to South, and 37 miles from West to East, making it possible to experience nearly all of its many attractions in just a few days time. You may, however, just want to spend your entire vacation sprawled out on the shores of its many serene beaches, and that’s fine too. With an abundance of vacation rentals scattered all throughout the state, in big cities, small Colonial seaside towns, and in natural areas, you’re bound to find the perfect accommodation for your stay.

A vacation rental for everyone

Whether you’re planning a trip to Rhode Island as a group, a family, or as a couple, there is no shortage of vacation rentals to choose from. Stay in a classic, Colonial-style home in Providence, or an urban-style apartment in Newport equipped with all the modern amenities you could possibly need. For family summer vacations, there are plenty of spacious, oversized homes available right on the sandy shores of the coastline, many of which are equipped with private pools and well-kept gardens. Stay at a quiet vacation rental in nature, surrounded by trees in one of the state’s forested areas, or enjoy a stay in one of the many charming, New England-style small towns.

The area and getting around

Navigating around the nation’s smallest state

Rhode Island may be small, but that only makes it easier to see and do more during your visit (and there is a lot to do!). Many of the major towns and cities are just a short drive from one another. If you’ll be flying into the state, the major airport, T.F. Green International Airport, is located just 10 minutes outside of Providence, the state’s capital and biggest city. The second-biggest city, Newport, is located in the Narragansett Bay, just a 30-minute drive from Providence. The south coast of the state is a popular destination for sailers and beach-goers, with many small towns and sandy beaches scattered along the coastline.

Getting around

It is ideal to have a private car during your stay in Rhode Island so that you can explore all that the state has to offer. There are several car rental companies in both of the major cities and at the international airport. Newport and Providence are both walkable, with trolleys, taxis, Uber, and Lyft also available to reach popular attractions around the cities.

Travelers and activities

Rhode Island for Families

Rhode Island is a fantastic family destination with plenty of family-friendly activities on offer. Families with young children should pay a visit to the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence. The zoo-park is set in over 40 acres of lush, natural woodlands and offers the opportunity to see animals from all over the globe. The park features many endangered species which are protected through a conservation program set in place to increase their rate of survival. Families of all ages will enjoy walking through the Historic Federal Hill in Providence. This colorful and renovated old Italian neighborhood is filled with several top-rated restaurants, cafés, and fun points of interest.

Rhode Island for Couples

The cliff walk in Newport is a must-do activity for couples. This stunningly scenic 3.5-mile walk along the coastline showcases some historic attractions, including the back lawn of the famed Breakers mansion, as well as other well-known Newport Mansions. Water Place Park in Providence is another scenic walking area well worth visiting. A walk through this park showcases spectacular views of Providence, street art, river views, and access to many of the sights and attractions in the heart of the city.

Despite its small size, Newport has over 400 miles of coastline!
