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.

Things to do

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.

Weather

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.

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.
