Jamestown is considered one of the "sleepier" coastal towns many covet for that reason alone. Some say it is reminiscent of what small-town life "used to be"... children ride their bicycles to the wharf's ice cream shop, "locals" assemble at East Ferry Deli for their morning coffee and paper, while residents relish in the summer months away from the hustle and bustle of nearby Newport. Many would consider Jamestown a sanctuary. The island has historic farms, beautiful parks, award-winning restaurants, and locally owned shops and art galleries offering a community-centric atmosphere.
