Newport

— 5 nights

City by the Sea

With coastline on the west, south, and east, Newport is a maritime city with a rich history.
You've added Slater Mill Museum, Fort Adams State Park, Cape Cod National Seashore, and other attractions to your itinerary. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Rough Point Museum and Chateau-sur-Mer. Get some cultural insight at Rosecliff and St. Mary's Catholic Church. Change things up with these side-trips from Newport: Boston (Freedom Trail Tours & Granary Burying Ground) and Plymouth Rock (in Plymouth). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Trinity Church, look for gifts at The Newport Fudgery, visit a coastal fixture at Castle Hill Lighthouse, and make a trip to Thames Street.
