Newport — 4 nights

With coastline on the west, south, and east, Newport is a maritime city with a rich history.
Venture out of the city with trips to Bristol (Herreshoff Marine Museum & Colt State Park). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at The Breakers, sample some tasty brews at Rhode Island Red Food Tours, tour the old-fashioned way with a train tour, and take a memorable drive along Ocean Drive Historic District.

To find maps, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Newport online trip itinerary planner.

Newark to Newport is an approximately 3-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and bus. Traveling from Newark in May, expect Newport to be a bit cooler, temps between 65°F and 49°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) early enough to catch the flight 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.
