Newport ©
With coastline on the west, south, and east, Newport is a maritime city with a rich history.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Green Animals Topiary Gardens and Thames Glass. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Roger W. Wheeler State Beach and St. Mary's Catholic Church. Step out of Newport to go to Narragansett and see Scarborough State Beaches (North and South), which is approximately 34 minutes away. There's much more to do: visit a coastal fixture at Castle Hill Lighthouse, stroll around Brenton Point State Park, and see what you can catch with a fishing tour.

Plan my day in Newport using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

New York City to Newport is an approximately 4-hour car ride. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or take a bus. In July, Newport is little chillier than New York City - with highs of 80°F and lows of 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Sat) early enough to drive to New Shoreham.
