Enjoy walks to Newport Harbor and it’s wharves, parks, shops, world-class restaurants, museums, The International Yacht Restoration School and a close-up view of international racing and pleasure yachts. The waterfront abounds with multi-million dollar contemporary yachts and exquisitely restored wooden craft.
Also, enjoy colonial Newport, with hundreds of finely maintained seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth century historic homes and other points of historical interest. Cobblestones, slate-paved sidewalks and America’s very first gas street lamps recall Newport’s glorious history as the third largest port and sixth largest city in the colonial era. Historic churches include America’s oldest Jewish synagogue and the 1726 Trinity Church. Washington, Lafayette and Rochambeau walked these streets during the Revolutionary War.
Newport’s famed Gilded Age “summer cottages” are on display beginning just two or three blocks in another direction from your location. About a dozen of these magnificent mansions are open to the public and await your awe and admiration. The world famous Breakers, The International Tennis Hall of Fame and the American Museum of Illustration are highlights of well-known Bellevue Avenue.
Finally, not-to-be-missed Cliff Walk overlooking Easton’s Beach and the Atlantic Ocean. Bellevue Avenue leads to picturesque Ocean Drive, seven miles of oceanfront glory.
Bicycling, on foot, or by car you’ll encounter the national kite flying center at Brenton State Park and family friendly Gooseberry Beach. Gooseberry includes a calm water lagoon, friendly to the kids, and a great little café. Adults will love cocktails and dinner on the lawn of Inn at Castle Hill, called one of America’s most romantic inns by Conde Nast Traveler. Fort Adams State Park, at the end of Ocean Drive features a restored nineteenth century stone fort and a view back across the harbor to downtown Newport.
Entertainment opportunities are just as close and abundant. The world famous Newport Jazz, Folk and Classical Festivals are complemented by an independent film theater and film festival, live theatre, clubs and the finest dining imaginable. The Gibson Sunset Music Festival features top name musical acts, and ethnic festivals abound throughout the summer.
