Welcome to Newport, Rhode Island!


Often called "America's First Resort," Newport was founded in 1639, and soon became a bustling colonial seaport, rivaling Boston and New York. Since then, Newport has undergone many transformations; the town has been a major Navy port, a summer escape for the elite of the gilded age, a mecca for sailors, and today, a wonderful vacation destination.

During a quick walk around town, any visitor can observe all of this rich history. America's Cup '12 Meter' Sailing Yachts still grace the bay, while The Preservation Society of Newport continues to maintain the city's famous mansions.
