The Skinny, and a big one, on Newport
By far, the utopian attraction of our beautiful east bay, filled with tales of mansions, a rich trade history, the elite, sailors coming into port, gorgeous waterfront shops, hotels, bed and breakfast inns, restaurants and boutiques.
Founded in 1639, Newport, Rhode Island is considered to be the shining gem in the coastal crown of New England. A haven for religious dissenters, a critical Colonial Era port city, a thriving artists’ colony, a summer playground for America’s barons of industry during the Gilded Age, home to the U.S. Naval War College and known as America’s First Resort, Newport is a destination like none other.
