Things to Do in Newport RI

Newport Mansions and The Cliff Walk

Let us help you plan your visit so that you can enjoy Newport like an insider.  Newport’s world class yachting events, Gilded Age architecture and chic galleries, boutiques and eateries draw countless visitors from around the world. The City-by-the-Sea bustles with year round activity, providing guests of our Newport B&B with vibrant summer and fall seasons as well as charming winter months filled with festivals, special events, and the opportunity to peacefully explore this year-round seaside community.

The scenic beauty of Newport is showcased on the historic Cliff Walk, a 3.5 mile picturesque pathway overlooking the Atlantic Ocean — located just steps from the Cliffside Inn. Magnificent Victorian mansions, such as the Breakers, Rosecliff, Marble House, and Rough Point preside along the walk aptly nicknamed “Millionaires Row”. Today nearly a dozen of the mansions operate as house museums and dazzle visitors with the opulence of Gilded Age architecture, interior design and lifestyles.

The staff at the Cliffside Inn are Newport insiders and will help make your visit to Newport one filled with unique and memorable experiences. As your personal concierge we will make your visit with us an enchanting vacation.
