Newport

Located on an island in the country’s tiniest state, Newport was a major seaport during the 18th century, and currently has more surviving colonial era buildings than any other state. After a rocky path through the American Revolution, Newport gained new life as a summer vacation destination for southern plantation owners, with the luxurious mansions still visited today. Because of its beachfront location, Newport is popular with outdoor enthusiasts eager to experience the Newport Cliff Walk and large public beaches. Fort Adams, a historical fort in use during the War of 1812, beckons historians, along with the Newport Historical Society.
