Prudence Island Travel Tips

Prudence Island Vacation Rentals for a Unique Vacation

Prudence Island, one of the largest islands in Narragansett Bay, is in Rhode Island. Part of the town of Portsmouth in Newport County, it sits in the center of the bay. From its early history as an agricultural area, it is now a major vacation area. The main vacation areas are Prudence Park, Broadway, Bristol Colony, Sandy Point, Homestead and Warnerville. The moderate climate makes Prudence Island lodging an excellent place to live or vacation. It has its own airport, T. F. Green, and is within an easy distance of major international airports, including JFK in New York and Newark New Jersey. There is an Amtrak service from Boston or New York. The main road routes include Interstates 95, 195 and 295. There is no road link to the island so the ferry is the only way to get on and off this charming island.

Prudence Island Lodging Is Just Ferry Ride Away

Take the ferry from Bristol to Prudence Island vacation rentals and leave your cares on the mainland. This island is one with a relaxed atmosphere with plenty of activities. The island’s lighthouse, Sandy Point Light, is one of the oldest lighthouse towers in Rhode Island but it is not open to visitors. From the island, many visitors will enjoy hiking around the island and fishing from its lovely beaches. Trails include both dirt and paved for hikers and include the area of Narragansett Bay Estuarine Research Reserve. Here, visitors can enjoy watching the resident birds. One of the most popular beaches is Sandy Beach on the west side. It is ideal for swimming.

A Prudence Island Accommodation near Historic Newport

In the region of Narragansett Bay, there are more than 30 islands to explore. On the largest island, Aquidneck Island is the charming town of Newport, known for its sailing and luxurious mansions. Many buildings here are influenced by various European palaces. Visitors are welcome to tour a variety of these mansions. The most famous mansion is that of Cornelius Vanderbilt II. Also open to the public is the Marble House, designed by Richard Morris Hunt. Newport’s historic downtown area attracts many visitors for its architecture, shopping, and restaurants. From here, visitors may like to take a boat tour or fishing trip out into the bay. Another popular activity here is to follow the Cliff Walk trail. This three-mile walk includes Eaton’s Beach where visitors can take a break to enjoy a swim. Those who enjoy scuba diving and fishing will want to visit Brenton Point State Park. Adams State Park is home to the museum of yachting and also a great place to discover the fun of sailing.

With all that water surrounding your Prudence Island accommodation, you will want to make the most of the area by taking a cruise of the bay or one of the ferry rides such as to Point Judith or Block Island. Of course, there is also the world-famous whale watching tours or perhaps a dinner cruise on a yacht. Racing enthusiasts can even cruise on one of the America’s Cup yachts. Anglers will make the most of the opportunities to go deep sea or inshore fishing but should not overlook that there are many places for freshwater fishing too. There are a variety of lakes and rivers in the region that offer excellent fishing, like the Blackstone River Valley. Wherever you are in the region, you will never be far from a golf course and many have spectacular ocean views.
