Things to do

Tourist attractions near Newport vacation rentals

Crammed with history, Newport is a culture vulture's dream. Fort Adams is Newport's historic coastal fort which was built in 1799. It offers guided tours and events throughout the summer. If you're more into architecture than military history, visit one of Newport's many magnificent mansions. Visit The Breakers, a grand mansion that served as the former summer home of Cornelius Vanderbilt II, and take a peek into lives of the Vanderbilts. Now a National Historic Landmark, you can take guided audio tours of the house and landscaped gardens.


Things to do near Newport vacation homes

Perched on the southern shores of Aquidneck Island, Newport's charming cobblestone streets are awash with stylish boutiques, art galleries, and trendy restaurants overlooking the water. You could book a mansion tour around Newport's most famous buildings or a walking tour of the historic district. For watersports enthusiasts, there are several beaches within easy reach, which draw surfers, sailors, and the fishing set during the summer months. But if all that sounds like too much effort, why not book a relaxing dolphin- or whale-watching cruise from the harbor instead?


Climate for your stay in Newport vacation homes

Rhode Island's weather is a bit of a mixed bag. While the summers are long, hot, and humid, it has its fair share of the wet stuff, so it's a good idea to book a Newport vacation rental with a covered porch and air-conditioning. Summer is the busiest time to visit and accommodations get booked up well in advance. For the best choice, visit in the shoulder seasons of spring and fall, when the sun still shines and the famous New England leaf change pulls in the crowds on weekends. In winter, temperatures drop to below 20 degrees and snow is not uncommon.

Natural features

What do you call a man with a gull on his head? Cliff

You don't need to travel far to stretch your legs, Newport has easy access to some of the island's best walking trails. An easy start is the famed Cliff Walk, a 3.5-mile trail which runs along Newport's shoreline. Probably the most scenic of the island's walking routes, it takes in many of the Newport mansions, along with sweeping coastal views. If you fancy something a little more challenging, venture out to the Nature Conservancy, which has more than 65 miles of hiking trails.
