Newport Is Yours to Explore

Founded in 1639 and later known as the “City of Summer White Houses”, Newport remains a popular vacation destination because of the storied past and its emergence as a vibrant, contemporary city filled with boutique shops and restaurants.

Navigate the 3.5-mile Newport Cliff Walk and take in lovely ocean views opposite of the Gilded Age mansions. Alternatively, move (or sail) at a more leisure pace on one of the many boat excursions offered by friendly, knowledgeable locals. Explore museums, monuments, and experience the flavor of New England’s fresh catches.
