The seaside state of Rhode Island has many and varied opportunities for romantic getaways, from the small, hip city of Providence to the affluent area of Newport. Couples swoon over the picture-perfect seaside locations as well as the historic Newport Mansions. Luxury hotels, secluded lodging, cozy bed & breakfasts can all be found in the Ocean State.
Filled with romantic walks, Gilded Age mansions, and gorgeous views of Narragansett Bay, Newport is a highly desirable location in Rhode Island for couples. If you’re looking for ocean views and luxury accommodations, The Chanler at Cliff Walk has everything you could possibly desire. Step into the historic mansion and find yourself overlooking the ocean. Take time to explore the secluded courtyards and soak in one of the private outdoor hot tubs.
Elegant and private, The Chanler at Cliff Walk has been restored recently. It is located just a few feet from the historic Cliff Walk – where you can enjoy magnificent views of the coast and some of the mansions -- and from shopping districts and romantic restaurants. This sophisticated inn has been such a hit among couples that it has been named New England’s most romantic inn.
Many couples like visiting a place of authentic nautical and maritime life. Rhode Island has a vast array of options. In the town of Narragansett, the Victorian-style Ocean Rose Inn is centrally located near the beach. Sit on the rocking chairs, feel the ocean breeze in your hair and stare off into the horizon while the ocean waves calmly ebb and flow.
If the thrill of city life is what you’re looking for on your next romantic getaway, spend the weekend in Providence. Luxury hotels can be found around every corner and entertainment is at your fingertips. WaterPlace Park is a series of walks and whimsical foot bridges along the city’s three downtown rivers, and it passes a community of hip restaurants and clubs adjacent to the famous Rhode Island School of Design campus. From art galleries to cultural attractions, Providence offers plenty to see and do while allowing couples to experience the serenity of a small city.
Although Rhode Island might be small, there certainly isn’t a shortage of romantic getaways available.
