Newport, Rhode Island is known for the beautiful mansions that speckle its coast. People travel here to get a great view, tour the historic houses, and lay out a towel on the beach.

If you love to sail or want to take the yacht out on a little expedition, this is the prime place to do so!
The first things you will come across in Newport are the giant mansions. Huge estates such as "The Breakers" or "The Elms" offer tours that give you both historical background and a peek into some of the most lavish homes you are likely to enter in your life. The International Tennis Hall of Fame and Museum has one of the most extensive collections of tennis memorabilia in the world. Then move the party to the outdoors. Cruise down Ocean Drive in the car then lace up your walking shoes to wander down Cliff Walk, which offers spectacular views of the ocean. Charter a sailboat for the day, or take the yacht out at sunset. The beaches range from the exclusive Bailey's Beach to Eastsons Beach where you can ride the carousel or check out the aquarium. Fort Adams is the historic Naval base where the famous Newport Jazz Festival is held. Thames Street is the main downtown street where you will find great shopping and dining.
Newport is best experienced when you are close to the beach or right by Thames street. You will want to be somewhere you can hop on a sailboat and enjoy the sunset at night, or walk down the street and sit down for some fine dining. While you may not be living anywhere quite as extravagant as the mansions you've been touring, you can find houses and condos furnished in the nautical Rhode Island style.
