Rhode Island Tourism features the beautiful town of Newport, a thriving Colonial Seaport since the early 1700’s and known as America’s First Resort and “City-by-the-sea”. The city offers something for everyone. Enjoy our beautiful beaches, take a sailing cruise on Newport Bay or tour The Newport Mansions to experience the Summer Cottages of the gilded age. Explore colonial Newport by taking a self-guided walking tour through the streets of our gas-lit Historic Hill District.

Newport also features some of the best Restaurants in New England. From casual taverns to renowned French and Continental cuisine.  Newport  features many special events and festivals that are organized through-out the year, such as the Newport Folk Festival (July), the Newport Jazz Festival (August), the International Boat Show (September) and many more.
