Newport

— 3 nights

City by the Sea

With coastline on the west, south, and east, Newport is a maritime city with a rich history.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like The Breakers and Boat Tours & Water Sports. Step out of Newport with an excursion to Herreshoff Marine Museum in Bristol--about 40 minutes away. There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Cliff Walk, admire the landmark architecture of Marble House, walk around Fort Adams State Park, and explore and take pictures at Ocean Drive Historic District.

When traveling from Newark in September, plan for slightly colder days in Newport, with highs around 74°F, while nights are about the same with lows around 58°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Sun) to allow time to fly back home.

The Ocean State
Despite being the country's smallest state, Rhode Island includes over 640 km (400 mi) of coastline, courtesy of Narragansett Bay and more than 30 islands. Most of the state is part of the U.S. mainland, despite its somewhat misleading name. Though it takes only about 40 minutes to drive across this tiny state, Rhode Island includes more white sandy beaches than most visitors can hope to explore on a single trip. The state's one big city and surrounding small towns brim with places to visit, such as museums, galleries, restaurants, bars, and historical neighborhoods packed with colonial-era buildings. Although the state may seem small, your holiday itinerary is sure to be chock-full.
