Rhode Island Vacations, Resorts, Rentals, Suites and Getaways
This historic seaside city blends colonial charm with the best of a summer beach getaway. Newport is located on lush Aquidneck Island, home to the state of Rhode Island, and has been a popular beach destination for East Coast dwellers for decades. In fact, Newport was once home to “Summer White Houses” of presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy, and served as a hideout for vintage stars like Grace Kelly during movie shoots! There are a multitude of fun spots to hit in this quaint coastal village, including The Newport Historic District, which contains one of the highest concentrations of Colonial-era houses in the United States, the White Horse Tavern, est. 1673 and still operating today, and visiting the craftsmen and women hard at work restoring the Gilded Age yacht, Coronet, at IYRS School of Technology & Trades in downtown Newport. There’s also no shortage of outdoor activities to explore. Don’t miss the breathtaking Newport Cliff Walk, where you can spend a day traversing the 3.5 mile public access walkway that follows the shoreline. If you’re itching to get out on the water, there are several places to rent your own boat and have some water sports adventures out at sea! For a small coastal town in the smallest state in the country, Newport packs a real punch, and contains so many diverse ways to enjoy all it has to offer.
