help with itinerary: 1 day in Newport

Jump to last reply

we will be in Newport for one day from 10am to 6pm at the end of October, arriving via cruiseship.

this is the current plan: tour the breakers, then do part of cliffwalk. head back to town. do a walking tour of town (on our own) and peruse some shops.

anything else we should definitely see/do? we are traveling with a 16 month old, so we won't be able to do any more than one mansion or museum.

are there any parks or playgrounds where she could run around for a bit?

i am also debating on cliff walk. we will have her in a front- or backpack carrier, but i'm wondering if this is do-able. i have heard that parts of the walk are not easily navigable, but we weren't planning on doing the whole walk.

other things i was considering are a harbor cruise or renting bikes. maybe it will be too cold for either of these.

any thoughts are welcome. thanks in advance.
