Fun Things To Do In Newport, RI

Attractions, Sightseeing and Events


Newport Tourism and Sightseeing
Newport, RI is rich in rewards for travelers interested in historic and contemporary culture. This small city by the sea has more colonial structures than any other city in America and includes examples of every type of architecture seen in this country since 1700. The 19th century Gilded Age mansions are a big draw, but other cultural treasures await the curious traveler including Newport's Old Quarter where you 'll find the Redwood Library, Touro Synagogue, Colonial buildings restored by the Newport Restoration Foundation, the Newport Historical Society's Museum and Shop at Brick Market, and the Newport Art Museum, housed in the Stick-Style John Griswold House. America's most prominent artists came to Narragansett Bay to paint throughout the 19th century, and the Newport Art Museum's collections inlcude some fine examples of their work. In addition, the Museum shows more work by regional contemporary artists than any other venue in the state. And did I mention the beaches and the Cliff Walk?  Skip to Best Time to Visit. View Map.
