Newport, RI —
Local shopping & local insights

Step it up a notch

Sole Desire

Heels, flats, clogs, or boots, Sole Desire carries popular name brand footwear that you can’t find anywhere else in town. They always have the latest styles and since I have large feet (great balance), they always have my size! They also sell cool hats and bags.

Cabbage Rose

If you need a new outfit and don’t want to look like everyone else, head over to Cabbage Rose near Waite’s Wharf. The store owner is a lovely gal who gets her collection from many different vendors and she always seems to pick just the right amount of posh.


An affordable boutique beauty supply store that carries my favorite makeup line. They provide in-store consultations to make sure you’re getting the right products for your individual needs. They help enhance your inner beauty!

Duris Studios

Located on lower Thames, this boutique truly has the most jaw dropping designed jewelry pieces I have ever seen. The owner, Kevin Duris, custom made a bracelet for my daughter around a particular shaped stone she had chosen. He also showcases other local artists’ wares in his store.

Wag Nation

Wag Nation takes care of that four legged family member. Designer collars, gluten-free treats, comfy beds, and doggie life jackets will have your furry friend in style. The store mascot, Peter, will give you a nod from his bed as you enter the store.

You know you’re a local when

Save the Bay

You get up before dawn to hit slack tide for the annual Save the Bay swim from Newport to Jamestown.

"This gorgeous 1.7 mile swim gives participants an up close view of the Naval War College and Rose Island Lighthouse."

I’ve done this swim five times and have been a volunteer too. It’s an incredible experience and all swimming skills are welcome.

The Jane Pickens Theatre

You make an evening out on the town around catching the latest movie at The Jane Pickens Theatre on Washington Square. This venue is a combination of movie theatre and live stage entertainment. They offer a mix of first-run movies, documentaries, and art films in addition to utilizing the stage and venue to bring unique presentations to the public.

Freebody Park

You grab an extra cushion seat from your house to take in a Rogers High School Football game at Freebody Park. This park held the first Folk Festival in the 60’s and still has the most uncomfortable, original cold cement bleachers. Enjoy the flavor of the local announcers as they support the youth of the town. A true Friday Night Lights setting.

Fort Adam’s State Park

You pack a picnic and throw the dogs in the car and head over to Fort Adam’s State Park for an afternoon of eating and swimming. Go down to the docks and watch the myriad of sailboats on Narragansett Bay or take a tour of the fort.

Castle Hill

You cap a day with drinks and the most glorious sunsets at Castle Hill along Ocean Drive. Cozy up in the Adirondack chairs, order some appetizers, listen to the surf, take a deep inward breath, and relax. This is Newport at its finest.
