Incredible Cultural Activities
Before you decide to walk through the amazing mansions, you can stroll along Cliff Walk. The path overlooks the sea on one side and the elegant lawns and gardens on the other. Another attraction in Newport is the National Museum of American Illustration with work from the 1780s to the 1950s by Norman Rockwell, Violet Oakley, Howard Pile, Maxfield Parrish and more.
Children and adults love a cruise on a schooner out of Newport Harbor around Narragansett Bay where you will see the famous mansions and the world’s largest fleet of America’s Cup 12-meter yachts. You can even take sailing classes.
Water Activities and More
Along with sailing, boating and fishing, a Newport timeshare offers opportunities for many other water sports, including surfing and windsurfing. The rocky shoreline around Beavertail State Park is perfect for hiking and exploring tide pools. Easton’s Beach is a great place just near the Cliff Walk. It is the venue every Tuesday for Family Night with live music and Children’s Night every Thursday during the season. You can rent chairs, surfboards and boogie boards and umbrellas. There is a snack bar, picnic area, beach store, shower, restrooms and a skateboard park. Plenty to keep kids busy for hours.
In 1763, the oldest synagogue in America was dedicated and it still stands today. The Touro Synagogue was designed by noted architect, Peter Harrison. George Washington himself honored the congregation in a letter dated August 21, 1790 and this building is a gem of classical architecture and Jewish rites. It is a National Historic Site. The Trinity Church has the traditional white New England Spire and an organ played by George Frederic Handel in 1733.
