North Kingstown: a charming corner of Rhode Island

Rhode Island's coastal town of North Kingstown is best known as the birthplace of the American artist Gilbert Stuart, in near Saunderstown. His 18th-century former home now serves as a museum of his life and works. If centuries-old architecture interests you, there's plenty more near your North Kingston vacation rental to admire. There's more than just the attractions though. The nearby bay offers a ton of water sports, like kayaking or snorkeling, whereas further inland there are opportunities to hike along the trails or go cycling. You'll never be bored when you stay in this quaint corner of Rhode Island.

Things to do

Visit Gilbert Stuart's birthplace in North Kingstown

If you can drag yourself away from the beach, there are several landmarks that are worth some of your precious vacation time. In the little village of Wickford, you can see Smith's Castle, a beautiful white clapboard home built over 2 centuries ago and one of the oldest in Rhode Island. Alternatively, for more architecture, try the Gilbert Stuart Birthplace and Museum in Saunderstown, which hasn't changed all that much since it was built in the late 18th-century. Military history buffs should swing by the Seabee Museum and Memorial Park, or the Goddard Memorial State Park.

Activities

Seafaring adventures await in North Kingstown

As the North Kingston vacation rentals are so close to the ocean, it's hardly surprising that most of the things to do are seafaring adventures. During the warm summer months, when the sea around the bay is calm, you can hop on kayaks to paddle along the coast or board one of the daily fishing charters, to try your luck at hooking in a big one. Alternatively, for something a little more fast-paced, rent one of the jet skis and let rip across the water. If you don't mind the chilly waters, you can even go snorkeling or scuba diving.

Weather

Summertime is North Kingstown's peak season

If you're looking for hot weather and beach time, you'll need to nab a North Kingston vacation rental in the summertime, when the temperature reaches its peak. Between June and August sees the biggest influx of travelers staying in North Kingstown vacation rentals, as families escape the stuffy cities and indulge in the water sports. It's not the only time to visit though. If you want to skip the crowds, visit between April and May or September and October, when the climate can still be delightful, the beaches aren't as crowded and the rental prices drop considerably.
