Watch Hill

This charming village is nestled along Block Island Sound in the southwest corner of Rhode Island. Watch Hill is on a peninsula, nearly surrounded by ocean, further adding to its awe inspiring beauty. Outdoor activities in the area include rowing, swimming, ocean sailing, fishing and hiking. Additionally, local shopping and fine restaurants combine to make it a fun day trip and,  the best part is, it will only take you 20 minutes to get there.


The City of Newport is at the southern end of Aquidneck Island in Narragansett Bay, about 30 miles southeast of Rhode Island’s capital of Providence.  The City is bounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the east and the south, Narragansett Bay on the west, and by the Town of Middletown on the northeast. Newport is accessed from the west by Interstate 95 via the Jamestown and Pell Bridges. From the north use Routes 24 and Interstate 195 via the Mount Hope Bridge and the Sakonnet River Bridge.

Block Island

This little island is special in many ways.  Just a ferry ride away you can enjoy a laid-back beach day or explore the island by bicycle or moped.  There are many restaurants and shops to explore which makes it the perfect day trip.

We look forward to your visit
