Day Trip: Newport, Rhode Island
If there’s one thing about New England, there’s never a shortage of places to visit on a tank of gas.
One of my favorite places to visit is Newport, RI, just a 90-minute car ride from Boston. I may be partial because it is my home town, but I think you’ll agree, it’s worth the trip.
The City by the Sea is, of course, known for its coastline, but it has something for everyone…family entertainment, a flourishing nightlife, local shopping and loads of history…so make this the next stop on your day tripping list.
Besides the obvious walk along Cliff Walk or visit to the mansions, here’s a short list of other things to do when you’re in town.
