Newport & Bristol County are full of breathtaking views, quaint streets and buildings, historic mansions and picturesque marvels. Here are the 11 most Instagrammable spots in Newport County. #NoFilterNeeded
Castle Hill Lighthouse
If you’re in Newport and you don’t go see this lighthouse, you are missing out big time. This staple of Newport is a sight you won’t want to miss.
Also known as Sachuest Beach, this roomy beach is the combination of soft sand, perfect waves for swimming and surfing and stunning views of St. George's to the right and the Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge to the left. On a beautiful day the water is filled with sailboats. Every angle is Instagram worthy.
The Claiborne Pell (Newport) Bridge
Is this not the prettiest bridge you have ever seen? Not only does it bring you into Newport to see amazing views, but it is a sight in and of itself. Not only is it beautiful during the day, but at night when it is all lit up and the sun is setting. Just flawless.
The Cliff Walk
If you didn’t walk the cliff walk and snap a few photos did you even go to Newport at all? This 3.5 miles of views on one side and historic mansions on the other is a can’t miss spot with some of the best scenic attractions. Even your flip phone can capture the beauty.
Brenton Point State Park
Enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the ocean and watch the waves crash against the rocks. Bring your kite to join the many others in some crazy kite-flying. Clear your camera roll, you'll need the space!
Also known as Peabody's Beach, Third Beach in Middletown is the perfect place for a picnic, some pictures and a nice Instagram post!
Hands down great view and amazing pictures during sunset. Need I say more? I think the pictures speak for themselves.
This breathtaking and historic 10-mile road is just something you have to see for yourself. Get out of your car and let it soak in.
Castle Hill Inn
Adirondack chairs, drinks, food and incredible views…what more is there to ask for?
This harbor-front park is perfect for your family with its picnic tables, playgrounds, fishing pier and open fields. Everything combined creates the most spectacular Instagram sight.
Van Zandt Pier
Not only is this a beautiful place to view the sunset on the water, you can also go fishing, watch the fireworks and relax on the beautiful pier. You might want to change your setting to panorama because the 360° view is something that needs to be captured.
