Visit to Rhode Island

I plan to visit New England for a fortnight next August from the Uk. I will fly into Boston and will start at Ogunquit in Maine (a re-visit) and then would like to visit states other than Maine. Would you recommend a stop in Rhode Island? I would love to visit quintessential New England small towns (particularly coastal) and would be interested in scenery, wildlife, crafts and attractions.

Thank you.

Well this being the Rhode Island forum will likely be biased...but yes you should visit Rhode Island.

The coastline is sort of a blend of the rocky coast of Maine and the long, sandy beaches of Cape Cod. Lovely scenery. Newport is a very small city that is one of the most historically rich locations in the country. Great food, arts, history, scenery, beaches, sailing, fishing and more. The beach towns of Narragansett and Westerly are nice. The town of bristol is another rich, historical spot with a pretty waterfront and lots of nice restaurants and shops.

Of course all of coastal New England is VERY busy in August so if you want to see something different the mountain areas of western Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont are relatively quiet (at least on weekdays) and very beautiful with some lovely small towns.

Is Newport a reasonably safe destination for a single female traveller?
