Jamestown is just a hop, skip and a jump from bustling Newport, however, this island still manages to maintain a quiet and charming feel. There is plenty of seafood to be found here, stop in at Fish for a sampling of Jamestown’s best and follow up the meal with a visit to a few of Jamestown’s shops, we’d recommend the handblown glass at Clancy Designs.
