Small really is beautiful when it comes to Rhode Island. Only 37 miles wide and 48 miles deep, 'Little Rhody' is the USA's smallest state. However, it has 400 miles of coastline and a great sailing tradition, as well as world-class arts and music festivals. There is an astonishing wealth of architecture and this is the birthplace of America's industrial revolution. Welcome to the Ocean State!
There is plenty to see and do here, with Providence and Newport, two of New England's most historic and lively cities. The state abounds with soft, sandy beaches, peaceful countryside, fine restaurants and high-quality inns and B&B's.
Incidentally, Rhode Island isn't an island. The explorer Giovanni da Verrazano decided that the coastline reminded him of the island of Rhodes in Greece!
Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?
We aim to present choices across the spectrum but there are many hundreds of places to stay
and not room to feature them all. Do speak to your Bon Voyage travel consultant and click the

We would rate the Bellagio as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in.
Fabulous, glitzy, exciting. We loved having breakfast at the poolside
café... one of our best experiences ever. If it hadn't been for you we
wouldn't have had the suite or cabana and we loved them. We both agreed
that the hotel was the best for us and you had suggested that so well done!
