New Year's in Newport RI

Jump to last reply

How is New Years eve in Newport, especially for out of towners? The events at some of the mansions really do sound fabulous, but I wonder if it is more of a locals event and If I'd feel really out of place.
At the other end, is First Night too much of a family event for a couple of thirtysomethings? Not worried about the lack of alcohol, I just am wondering if the events are mostly kiddie oriented.
Other ideas? An early dinner on New Year's eve (8 pm) in a place that would serve a regular menu, not a special holiday one? Can be really casual, or something a bit more special but still not expensive. I will have a car, so it can be outside of Newport too.
I know I'm asking about a very wide range of prices here. I still haven't decided what kind of weekend I'm looking for, so I'm open to all sorts of suggestions!
