TOD Loves Newport!
Newport, Rhode Island could be straight out of a storybook. The community is well known as a New England summer resort and as the sailing capital of the United States, with Atlantic Ocean coastlines on its east, west and south. Newport has excellent restaurants that attract tourists from throughout New England.
What's hot right now? The Newport Jazz Festival and Newport Folk Festival are the hottest summer tickets in town. Do them in style by going by boat and dropping anchor off Fort Adams.
TOD's TOP PICKS
Where to stay:
If you’re visiting Newport, book your stay at Gurneys Newport Resort & Marina, their seaside location on Goat Island offers 360° water views and the seclusion of a private island yet is just a jaunt from the shops and eateries of downtown Newport.
If you’re looking for some great spots to dine, we recommend hitting up local favorites such as Tavern on Broadway with their Buck-A-Shuck Wednesdays, Norey’s (RI’s #1 craft beer bar) and the new 1908 Public Housewhich boasts the best burger in all of Newport!
And if you love donuts (and who doesn’t?) Swing by Liberty Donuts for the freshest delectable delights in all of Rhode Island!
No trip to Newport is complete without a trip to our famed Newport Mansions. Pro Tip: Grab a Five House ticket and check out a handful. It’s well worth the price and will save you some $$$.
Taste the flavor:
Swing by the Newport Craft Brewing & Distilling Co. and sample some of their award-winning creations.
Founded in 1999 by four college friends, Newport Storm Brewery was the original production craft brewery in Rhode Island. They created more than 100 distinctive beers while keeping things local and authentic. From their flagship Hurricane Amber Ale to seasonal brews made with Rhode Island grown ingredients, to beers aged in rum barrels, the brewery has been in the vanguard of craft brewing for nearly 20 years.
In 2006 the crew began distilling craft spirits. They were the first distillery in Rhode Island in 135 years and currently produce whiskey, a single barrel rum, and an overproof white rum.
