Newport — 5 nights

City by the Sea

With coastline on the west, south, and east, Newport is a maritime city with a rich history.
Venture out of the city with trips to Skip's Dock (in South Kingstown) and Providence (Brown University, Providence Performing Arts Center, &more). There's lots more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Cliff Walk, examine the collection at The Breakers, cruise along Ocean Drive Historic District, and take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

To find traveler tips and tourist information, go to the Newport trip site.

Athens, Greece to Newport is an approximately 14-hour flight. Traveling from Athens to Newport, you'll gain 7 hours due to the time zone difference. In April, Newport is slightly colder than Athens - with highs of 14°C and lows of 4°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Thu) to allow enough time to ride a ferry to New Shoreham.

The Ocean State
Despite being the country's smallest state, Rhode Island includes over 640 km (400 mi) of coastline, courtesy of Narragansett Bay and more than 30 islands. Most of the state is part of the U.S. mainland, despite its somewhat misleading name. Though it takes only about 40 minutes to drive across this tiny state, Rhode Island includes more white sandy beaches than most visitors can hope to explore on a single trip. The state's one big city and surrounding small towns brim with places to visit, such as museums, galleries, restaurants, bars, and historical neighborhoods packed with colonial-era buildings. Although the state may seem small, your holiday itinerary is sure to be chock-full.
