Though Newport is a gem of a seaside community any time of year, theres a reason our population swells during the warmest months. Most would agree that theres an electrifying energy in the enthralling months of the summer season throughout our destination. Some look forward to staking their claim along one of our pristine beaches, while others look to explore legendary mansions; experience scenic Cliff Walk; learn about our architecture and history; cruise though Newport Harbor; wine, dine and savor local flavor, take in a movie under the stars, and create an itinerary that best allows to discovering our nine coastal towns for one big experience. With no shortage of culinary events, music festivals, comedy and concerts, its easy to make this a summer to remember.
