Newport lies at the southern end of Aquidneck Island in Narragansett Bay, about 30 miles southeast of Providence. Known for its exceptional sailing, Gilded Age mansions, and seaside spots, Newport is regarded as a New England summer resort town. This world-class destination is filled with pristine beaches, yachting, golfing, fine art and architecture, state parks, and authentic historical sites.

Newport is best experienced from its historic walking areas of Ocean Drive and Cliff Walk, where its famous mansions and sweeping ocean views are on display. Residents enjoy annual events such as the Newport Jazz Festival, Newport Folk Festival, Newport International Boat Show, and Newport Oyster Festival. If you crave the bustle of city life, Boston is less than a two hour drive away.
