The Jamestown RI town attractions

Jamestown is a waterfront Newport County Rhode Island community that enjoys private real estate on a hideaway island that is so unique to this ocean state.

The town itself is known for its stunning coast line,  its true island feel, one of a kind Beavertail State Park and coastal luxury living by the locals.  It is a higher end community of island homes due to its geography between the towns of  Newport and North Kingstown.  The island itself is called Conanicut Island and has working farms on it, stunning landscapes of the ocean and coastlines to admire yet a small town appeal.
