An hour south of Boston is Rhode Island, which is not an island! Much is made of “Little Rhody’s” size (only 37 miles wide by 48 miles long), but America’s smallest state is well worth a visit. Providence, the state capital, has a fine art museum and an array of historic buildings. Newport scores for its mansions, the so-called “cottages”, with their echoes of Downton Abbey, that are open for tours. But Newport was also the “Sailing Capital of the World”, hosting the America's Cup from 1930 to 1983.

Why should I visit Rhode Island?
Delightful towns include Watch Hill, home to the Flying Horse Carousel – America's oldest merry-go-round (1883). On Narragansett Bay, pretty Wickford is known for art galleries – but it was also the setting for The Witches of Eastwick, by John Updike. For an away-from-it-all break, take the ferry out to Block Island.
