Need some directions over to Waterfront in Newport

Jump to last reply

We will be in Newport on Thurs October 11 - (9 to 3) visiting from a cruise ship. We'd like to leave the cruise behind for a day and go to the area where we can hook up with the Oldport Marine Service. Maybe a trip on the Amazing Grace or catch a picnic at the Aloha Cafe and go to Ft Adams St Park for a picnic.
We want to spend the day around this area and maybe take a taxi over to the Point district to enjoy the old houses and their colors.

So, how do we get there from our ship? Is it walking distance, or can we get a taxi or bus from there?

Also, in that area, where is a good place to sit a while and eat, drink and dream?
