Forbes recently named Newport, RI as America’s Prettiest Town.  It is a fun claim-to-fame and a great recognition  from such a prestigious publication, but it is certainly no surprise to us who live here and get to appreciate the splendor of this little island everyday.

Why not buy your next home in the prettiest town in America!?

We can help! 


Saturday marked the 5th Annual Aquidneck Island Paddle Race Day & Waterman Competition. With blue skies and a little hearty breeze to boost friendly competition, the paddling could not have been better. Following the series of paddle competitions, competitors enjoyed awards and then one heck of a barbecue on the beach, thanks to the Preppy Big BBQ. Third beach was a buzz with high spirits and cheer, and the occasional scheming for next year’s race. We could not have done it without the support of so many individuals, and are pleased the fun could benefit three local organizations.

(For now, I’d like to thank our rock-star photographer, Melissa Quintal, for taking outstanding photos and in turn, allowing me to share this day with you).

See you at the 2012 Paddle!
