Jamestown is quite simply, a wonderful place. It's beautiful, friendly,
easy to get to, and fun to live and work in. It's a unique island
community located across Narragansett Bay from Newport. We're connected
to the mainland by two bridges, so getting here is never a
problem. We're about 30 minutes south of Providence, one hour south of
Boston, and three hours north of New York. Transportation services such
as TF Green international Airport and Amtrak's Kingston station are
less than a half hour's drive. Amtrak's new Acela Express Service will
get you from Washington DC to Providence in six hours... Jamestown
offers the convenience of a suburban setting, while retaining the charm
and character of a New England coastal community.
Jamestown has approximately 6,000 residents,
larger population in the summer months. The entire island is
approximately 9 miles long by about a mile wide. We have terrific
access to all kinds of recreational activities, a good school system,
low property taxes, and a community that dedicates its time and and
impressive talent in all sorts of ways- including community theater
and the town band.
If you are new to Jamestown, give us a call and we'd be happy to meet
with you and show you around.
