City by the Sea

With coastline on the west, south, and east, Newport is a maritime city with a rich history. Founded in 1639, the city has an impressive collection of historical buildings alongside its stunning shoreline scenery. It is home to one of the highest concentrations of colonial homes in the nation and has three National Historic Landmark Districts. Around the turn of the 20th century, the city served as a summer retreat for wealthy families, such as the Astors and Vanderbilts, and today on of the top things to do in Newport is to explore their luxurious Gilded Age mansions. Considered America’s sailing capital, the city’s harbors are always bustling with activity. Newport has a close and enduring relationship with the United States Navy, and hosts a number of significant Naval institutions.
