Newport is a seaside city on Aquidneck Island in Newport County, Rhode Island, United States. The City of Newport is located approximately 37 miles (60 km) south-east of Providence, 21 miles (34 km) south of Fall River, and 74 miles (119 km) south of Boston. Known as a New England summer resort and for the famous Newport Mansions, it is the home of Salve Regina University and Naval Station Newport which houses the United States Naval War College, the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, and a major United States Navy training center.

The city is the county seat of Newport County (a county that no longer has any governmental functions other than court administrative and sheriff corrections boundaries). Newport was known for being the city of some of the „Summer White Houses“ during the administrations of Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy. The population is around 24,000.

Experience Cliff Walk as this 3.5-mile path that traces the edge of the sea and is one of the most beloved “things to do” throughout New England. Whether you’re a casual walker, a mansion gawker, a long-distance runner, a hobby photographer, a dog walker or an international jetsetter, you’ll fall in love with this awe-inspiring place.

Though home to the world renowned Newport Folk Festival, Newport Jazz Festival, premier sailing events and killer views of Newport Harbor, Fort Adams State Park is also home to Fort Adams, the largest coastal fortification in the U.S. Step back in time as you trek the maze of underground tunnels and visit the quarters where officers and their families lived more than a century ago. Here you’ll find over 180 years of American history and military culture all within the walls of this architectural and engineering feat.
