The BEST place in Newport to drink a cocktail and catch a sunset. Have a glass of wine on the lawn overlooking the mouth of Narragansett Bay. Food is good... but pricey - for the budget conscious just go to have a drink to enjoy the million dollar view.

The NMAI restores, conserves, researches provenance, exhibits and interprets its unique collection of original illustration art works in order to preserve this rich and significant part of our heritage. These art works include many milestone pieces created by artist/illustrators such as Norman Rockwell, Maxfield Parrish, Charles Dana Gibson, Howard Pyle ('Father of American Illustration'), NC Wyeth, Jessie Willcox Smith, JC Leyendecker, Violet Oakley, and over 150 other luminaries. Originally created to be reproduced in magazines and newspapers, as posters, advertisements, on products such as greeting cards, and the like. Because of their technical execution, the creativity they exude, the context in which they were created, and the purpose of their commission, they remain a poignant bookmark of our shared history, our American civilization. With illustration art now accepted as a meaningful part of the fine arts spectrum, these works have earned a lofty role in art history to the point where they are considered "the most American of American art." Over the years, the NMAI has organized, curated and toured over seventy exhibitions worldwide, including the Norman Rockwell's America in England... exhibit at Dulwich Picture Gallery in London, the oldest art museum in England on the occasion of their 200th Anniversary (1811-2011). That exhibition was reviewed by the London Times as being "Completely exceptional" and was named "The best art exhibition in London for 2013."
