Welcome to Newport

Newport, an Atlantic port city on Rhode Island’s Narragansett Bay, was an important 18th century whaling and trading port that became a summer resort for industrial-age millionaires. A trolley tour along the cobblestone streets and picturesque boulevards is the perfect way to take in the sights. Bellevue and Ocean Avenues are lined with historic mansions like Marble House and The Breakers, 18th-century Vanderbilt family “summer cottages”. Cruise the harbor and Lower Bay, or see the Rocky New England coastline from the deck of an America’s Cup racing yacht. Brown and Howard Wharf and Waite’s Wharf are great places to grab a bite to eat while admiring the luxury yachts at their moorings.
