Newport County, Rhode Island
Once referred to as "America’s First Resort," Newport has been welcoming visitors from around the world nearly 400 years. Recently named by Conde Nast Traveler one of the top destinations in the nation, it never disappoints. Surrounded by water on all sides, it was once a summer destination for some of the country’s wealthiest residents, who built the famed Newport mansions. Now friendly to all, its beautiful architecture, history, galleries, shopping, restaurants and activities thrill vacationers.
