Newport — 6 nights

With coastline on the west, south, and east, Newport is a maritime city with a rich history.
Explore Newport's surroundings by going to Providence (The Rhode Island Brew Bus, Room Escape Games, &more) and Colt State Park (in Bristol). Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Cliff Walk, examine the collection at Newport Car Museum, admire the striking features of The Elms, and enjoy the sea views from Beavertail Lighthouse and Park.

Plan my Newport trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

San Diego to Newport is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and bus. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time (PST) to Eastern Standard Time (EST), which is usually a 3 hour difference. Plan for colder temperatures traveling from San Diego in March, with highs in Newport at 43°F and lows at 29°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Wed) so you can catch the ferry to New Shoreham.

The Ocean State
Despite being the country's smallest state, Rhode Island includes over 640 km (400 mi) of coastline, courtesy of Narragansett Bay and more than 30 islands. Most of the state is part of the U.S. mainland, despite its somewhat misleading name. Though it takes only about 40 minutes to drive across this tiny state, Rhode Island includes more white sandy beaches than most visitors can hope to explore on a single trip. The state's one big city and surrounding small towns brim with places to visit, such as museums, galleries, restaurants, bars, and historical neighborhoods packed with colonial-era buildings. Although the state may seem small, your holiday itinerary is sure to be chock-full.
