    Fur traders and sheep grazing

    The islands of Jamestown, now part of Rhode Island, were first discovered by Europeans in the early 16th century when exploring Narragansett Bay. Later, they were used as a base for fur traders before English colonists used them for sheep grazing. Today, Jamestown is one of the wealthiest places to live in the country and a weekend getaway gem packed full of award-winning restaurants, well-maintained parks and boutique shops. Be warned, the Jamestown vacation rentals get booked up well in advance, so nab yours early to avoid disappointment.

    Fly over the island

    There's simply too many things to do close to Jamestown vacation rentals to list in one place. If you want to experience the landscape and beautiful coastline from above, consider booking a private helicopter flight from nearby Newport. Alternatively, jump on board one of the dinner cruises that depart throughout the summer and enjoy the peace of the Narrangasett Bay while eating delicious local cuisine. If you head to the north of the island, you'll find the Beavertail State Park, an ideal spot for walking and admiring the rocky coastline and ocean views.

    Fascinating historical attractions

    You won't need to travel far from your Jamestown vacation rental to find fascinating historical attractions. The Watson Farm offers a glimpse back at the lives of the residents over 300 years ago, while the Beavertail Lighthouse Museum lies on the tip of Conanicut Island and was once used to warn passing ships about the rocky coastline. Meanwhile, the Sydney L. Wright Memorial Museum houses an astonishing collection of artifacts ranging from the bygone times of the Narragansett Indians through to the early European colonists. Alternatively, the Jamestown Fire Department Museum has a collection of antique equipment to discover.

    Fickle weather in Jamestown

    If you want to know about the weather, look back to quote from Mark Twain who said, 'If you don't like the weather in New England now, just wait a few minutes'. It's true. The weather can be very fickle, but this adds to the charm of Jamestown. If you manage to book a Jamestown vacation rental during summer, you'll soak in soaring heatwaves cooled by the breeze from the sea, while fall is warm, bright and perfect for hikes along the coastal paths in the state park. Bundle up in the winter and dive into cozy little restaurants or museums to warm up.

    Endless acres of wildlife habitats to explore

    Just a few miles across on the mainland is the Big River Mangement Area, a vast park encompassing forests and wetland habitats as well as the Big, Nooseneck and Congdon Rivers. It's easily reached from Jamestown vacation rentals and when you're there you can spot bounding white-tailed deer and cotton tail rabbits. There are also furbearers like fox, raccoons and mink roaming around, as well as ruffed grouse, wild turkeys and wetland species like waterfowl. Cast your line into the well-stocked rivers to catch a trout if you feel lucky.
