About Me:
Home to spectacular coastal scenery, awe-inspiring architecture, a thriving waterfront downtown, and welcoming hospitality, Newport, Rhode Island is considered by many to be a shining gem in the coastal crown of New England. From weekend getaways spent touring the famed Gilded Age mansions that were once the summer playground for socialite families with names like Astor and Vanderbilt to an afternoon of wine tour and tasting through Newport's three scenic vineyards, the options for interesting activities, distinctive stories, and enticing photo opportunities are countless!

Did you know that visitors to Newport can rent court time to play where the legends have played on the lawn courts of the International Tennis Hall of Fame? Or that guests looking for a unique bit of history can take a tour of the Astors' Beechwood mansion where they will be escorted by guides in character of the powerful family that once vacationed there? Home to the oldest operating synagogue in the United States, the oldest operating tavern in the nation, and rows of historic homes, walking tours through Newport offer visitors a unique way to experience and learn the many stories of the city-by-the-sea!

Discover Newport, Rhode Island, a spectacular destination brimming with stories to be told!
