The city of Newport is located on Aquidneck Island in Newport County, Rhode Island. Newport has a cozy, New England beach town setting. Find a Newport bed and breakfast amidst historic colonial homes and Gilded Age mansions, and with coastlines to the east, west and south, you can hear the water from your Newport inn. If you like sailing or fishing, than be sure to check out the local boats for rent Newport, after all, is the sailing capital of the US. Golf fans should stop by the historic Newport Country Club location for the first U.S. Open and the first U.S. Amateur. To spend the afternoon outdoors, head to the Newport Cliff Walk, a 3.5 miles walkway along the shoreline. The Brenton Point State Park is also located nearby and is a great location for an afternoon picnic. If you time your visit right you may be in the park during the Brenton Point Kite Festival. Other annual events include the Newport Folk Festival and the Newport Jazz Festival, both taking place in Fort Adams. With so many activities and restaurants, Newport is a top choice B&B destination. Just a tasting of Newports culinary options includes the Aloha Café, the Barking Crab Restaurant, the Bouchard Restaurant and Inn and the Black Alley Pub.
