Just back from Newport and Block Island

Jump to last reply

I am in love with Rhode Island!! I just came back from 5 days in Newport and 4 in Block Island. The purpose of this vacation was to totally destress and seek some much needed relaxation and it was accomplished. We drove to Newport and stayed at the Fairfield Inn at Long Wharf. The place was in walking distance to everything along the wharves and it had a nice pool as well - just ignore the time/share hawkers!! We took in a few of the mansions - Breakers, Rosecliff and Rough Point. Also walked along Cliff Walk - awesome!! We visited Ft Adams, the Newport Winery and took a boat ride aroung the harbor. Most of the restaurants were excellent - the Moorings, Stradella, the Red Parrot, Cafe Zelda. (The Landing was not so great.) I was disappointed that the Touro Synagogue was closed for renovation. Maybe we'll see it next time. After doing lots of people watching we drove back over the bridge on to Pt Judith to catch the 55-minute ferry ride to Block Island. Stayed at the Atlantic Inn - charming and picturesque. Lots of hiking on nature trails, hanging out on the beach and eating at wonderfully low-key restaurants where elegant means clean shorts!!
Sitting in Adirondeck chairs on the expansive lawn in front of the Inn overlooking the water was indeed peaceful and serene and everything I had expected and more. Although some places were not fully operational because of the season, we still had a good time and plan to go back.
