Newport

— 2 nights

City by the Sea

With coastline on the west, south, and east, Newport is a maritime city with a rich history.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Rhode Island Red Food Tours and Bellevue Avenue Historic District. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Rough Point Museum, wander the streets of Thames Street, examine the collection at The Breakers, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Cliff Walk.

To find traveler tips, ratings, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Newport trip itinerary website.

New York City to Newport is an approximately 3.5-hour car ride. You can also fly; or take a bus. Traveling from New York City in May, you can expect nighttime temperatures to be little chillier in Newport, with lows of 49°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Mon) so you can go by car back home.

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.
