Newport RI Tips & Tricks

Jump to last reply

Newport Rhode Island Is a wonderful spot for families looking to get away or just a couple looking for a romantic weekend. My wife and I stayed in Newport this past week and after seeing the sites and trying to do it all. i thought i might offer some help to those that might follow in my foot steps.

Newport RI is a fun filled island with plenty of things to do. My first suggestion is finding a place to stay that is right in the downtown area, it may cost you a little more but it will be well worth it when you don't have to drive or take a cab ( they make you wait forever).

After finding a place to stay looking up a few local restaurants would be wise (there are so many to choose from). The locals will help with the final say but it's a good idea to have a list of places you would like to go to. After the two major things are out of the way (Eating And Sleeping) It is all about fun from here on out. If you are a younger person, you might look for some nightlife ( which Newport has a lot of) or if your older ( like me) you might want to take in a mansion or possibly the beach (if its nice out).

Newport Is a wonderful place to visit and has plenty of fun things to do, it is the perfect mix of history and fun. A website that helped me out with my trip (planning and dinning) was www.RockNewport.com They Have A great rating system and it's easy to use.

Have fun in Newport
