Newport ©
With coastline on the west, south, and east, Newport is a maritime city with a rich history.
Bring the kids along to Roger Williams Park Zoo and Narragansett Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to WaterFire Providence (in Providence), Kinney Azalea Garden (in Kingston) and Colt State Park (in Bristol). There's still lots to do: admire all the interesting features of Cliff Walk, cruise along Ocean Drive Historic District, steep yourself in history at Fort Adams State Park, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Mary's Catholic Church.
