Sure, Newport's opulent mansions, luxury boutiques, elegant restaurants, sprawling vineyards, rooftop bars, and historic attractions are nice, but when it comes to kids, we've got a few tricks up our sleeves for maximum fun.
From casual eateries with some of the best grub around, to scavenger hunt bingo and chances to try sailing, welcome to the time of their lives.
When you're ready, we can't wait to welcome you back to The Classic Coast. Rest assured, local restaurants, shops, and businesses are doing everything they can to ensure the safety of all. This includes wearing mandatory face coverings, following guidelines put in place by health and government officials, and implementing stringent cleaning practices.
All we ask when you land on these shores is that you play your part in keeping everyone safe. Please be kind, wear a mask, wash your hands, and maintain six feet of social distancing from others.
Where better to experience sailing than in The Sailing Capital of the World? This one-hour experience with Sail Newport allows your kids to experience the thrill of sailing with the safety of an expert sailor. Don't forget to pack hats, sunglasses, sunscreen and a jacket or fleece to layer.

PICK YOUR OWN
Your kid is going to love rolling up their sleeves to pick their own apples, strawberries, blueberries and more at the area's lengthy collection of pick-your-own farms and orchards.
Pro Tip: When they've picked to their heart's content, head over to one of the Newport Mansions or Green Animals Topiary Garden for the "Stroll the Gardens and Grounds" where you can bring your own picnic to enjoy overlooking the sights.
TRANSPORT BACK TO THE 18TH CENTURY
Explore 18th-century farm life in Rhode Island at Coggeshall Farm in Bristol, where history comes to life. Set on 48 acres of coastal farmland, you'll roll up your sleeves and experience the daily life of a tenant farmer while guided by live interpreters in costume. Think: blacksmithing, tinsmithing, maple sugaring, animal husbandry, making textiles and pottery, raising crops and homemaking. You'll even help cook a meal over the hearth to enjoy by candlelight.
