In Newport County we love to explore the nature trails and hikes outdoors. Check out the Cliff Walk (Newport), Sachuest Nature Preserve (Middletown), and Weetamo Woods/Pardon Gray Nature Preserve (Tiverton), and Colt State Park (Bristol) for an active vacation experience in Newport

Nearby Jamestown and Bristol have a lot to offer as well. Also, Providence is turning into a great outdoor hotspot. They renovated their river walk and offer many kayaking opportunities.

This is a nautical town with many sailing opportunities. We enjoy this town in the summer. The Cliffs are a place for dramatic photos, the "guilded age" is celebrated by the mansions namely the Breakers. The roads in and out of town wound and meander along the coast. There are many public beaches to enjoy not to mention restaurants and shops.
