Newport

— 6 nights

City by the Sea

With coastline on the west, south, and east, Newport is a maritime city with a rich history.
Take a break from the city and head to Bellevue Avenue Historic District and Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge. Visit Lizzie Borden House and Castle Hill Lighthouse for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Newport: Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art (in Hartford), Worcester Art Museum (in Worcester) and New Britain Museum of American Art (in New Britain). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at International Tennis Hall of Fame, steep yourself in history at The Preservation Society of Newport County, experience rural life at Newport Vineyards, and admire the masterpieces at RISD Museum.

To find other places to visit, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Newport trip planning app.

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Newport. January in Newport sees daily highs of 37°F and lows of 24°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Fri) 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.
