Located on Aquidneck Island in Newport County, the pleasant seaside community of Middletown has a lot to offer visitors and residents alike. Middletown has two smaller villages, Easton Point and Sachuest, and functioned as the agricultural heartland of Aquidneck Island. Today, much of the town's development is on the agricultural side, while the beaches are still underdeveloped. Middletown offers a quiet, pleasant life with ample recreation opportunities and a close knit community feel.

If you're looking for a seaside home in Middletown, focus your search on the eastern side of town which is less developed and closer to the shore. The western part of Middletown is more developed, and has the greater share of Middletown apartments, condos, and single family homes. The most expensive areas of town include Sachuest and Middletown center, with Lawtons and the Pier Access Road offering less expensive Middletown homes. Many homes in Middletown have their own yards, and wherever you live you'll find convenient access to town beaches.

Middletown hosts an annual Aquidneck Island National Police Parade in spring, as well as special events for local and national holidays. While small, the community does offer several community library programs, road races, lectures, and other events. You'll find more information about events in Middletown on the town website. The neighboring community of Newport hosts many popular special events, including the Newport Folk Festival, which has been held since 1959, Newport Restaurant Week, the Polar Seltzer Great Chowder Cook-Off, and the Fourth of July fireworks.
