Newport + The Coast

Newport + The Coast Travel Guide

From the ocean-side trail you can trace the shore, enjoying views of majestic boats along with monied mansions (and often, their sumptuous pools) from their ocean-facing business ends.

Rent bikes near the ferry and then explore the stretches of flat terrain that run along the shore.

Gray’s has been an institution in Tiverton, across the river from Newport, since 1923. Current owner Marilyn Dennis keeps frozen pudding—a rum-based concoction with fruit—on the menu for the old-timers and adds such newer hybrids as strawberry cheesecake.

The mild surf is perfect for children.
