What not to miss on day trip to Newport RI

Jump to last reply

Visiting Boston for 5 days starting 30th August followed by 5 days at Chatham on Cape Cod with wife and 17 year old son. Will have use of a hire car for 2nd 5 days and planned to visit Newport for a day trip. What are the main areas we should not miss
1) For shops
2) For walking around and general sightseeing
3) For driving around
4) Best beach area if weather is very good.
We will probably be on beach in Cape Cod so beach is not really a high priority. We are not really into visiting museums , historical monuments etc just like to get a feel for the place and feel we have seen the nicest/most interesting areas. Also is there anywhere you would recommend stopping off at on way to or from Newport from Chatham. We live in Scotland and have been to NY City and Florida so looking forward to seeing more of the USA but dont want to try to cram too much in. Any advice would be gratefully received
