things to do in newport, rhode island

Newport and The Classic Coast is a feast for the senses; a veritable banquet of salt air, dappled light, ocean breezes, and creaking floorboards. Honestly, just spending some quiet time staring out at our horizon can feel life changing. Of course, if you want to turn up the volume, our coast is here to paddle, surf, skate, hike, bike, walk, sail, and more. So whatever adventure floats your boat, go find it...and take your time. We’ll be here, opening our doors, cooking up classic meals, and preparing seats by the fire or the harbor’s edge when you’re ready to refuel.
