Truth be told, whether you're in Newport for a day, a weekend, or the entire week (the dream!), the possibilities of what you can see and do are endless. You've got the obvious musts: Cliff Walk (the most serene 3.5-mile walk of your life), Ocean Drive, the mansions, and chowder overlooking the bay. But there's also so many exciting events, experiences, and dreamy sights you don't want to miss.
