Newport, Rhode Island


High on the cliffs above Narragansett Bay are some of the most sumptuous and luxurious mansions you will ever see, and many of them are open to visitors. Tour legendary homes like the Breakers, or witness the seasonal decorations all across the region. Newport also hosts many terrific nautical activities, like the annual yacht race, and the occasional tall ships show. Kids will also love the Brenton Point Kite Festival, held each summer at Brenton Point State Park.
