Why New England: Visiting Newport between March and May means you’ll bypass the frigid New England winter. While you may have to deal with a spring rain shower or two, it’s still pleasant enough to stroll the famous Cliff Walk and roam between the city’s famous mansions. As a plus, you’ll avoid the crowds of camera-toting summer tourists.

Where to stay: Take advantage of springtime rates at properties like Hotel Viking—which, situated atop the Historic Hill neighborhood with views of Bellevue Avenue, dates back to 1926 and looks like a proper Newport mansion in its own right. Nightly costs drop as low as $163 per room in April.
