Newport, RI —
What to do & where to dine
Take a walk on the local side
The Cliff Walk
A Newport, Rhode Island trademark. My family and I have spent countless afternoons strolling the cliffs, happily immersed between the views of the Atlantic Ocean and the historic mansions.
A small rustic ballpark just a stone’s throw away from the Newport Bridge. As a mother of three, I have spent many nights bringing my children to watch the local Gulls games on warm summer nights.
The Tennis Hall of Fame
The museum and its classic shingle-style architecture house with impeccable grass courts. Within the compound, my daughter expressed her love of tennis through participation as a ball girl. Her time spent here allowed her to come face to face with some of the top tennis players of the world. It is here that I often retire on my summer days in July to catch a glimpse of Jon Isner and Jack Sock.
The Aquidneck Island Farmer’s Market
Wednesday night’s on Memorial Boulevard cures anyone’s hankering for freshly picked produce. The local harvests include some of the best corn, tomatoes, eggplant, strawberries, blueberries, and honey. The items found here are sure to add some flavor to any home cooked meal.
The Haunted Walking Tour
The tour illuminates the dark side of Newport’s history. Feed your curiosity with legends of pirates, bewitched graveyards, and old haunted taverns as you walk the historic cobblestone streets of Newport.
