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.
