Sightseeing

Take a spin around the Ocean Drive and you'll never forget it. If you're lucky maybe the waves will be crashing up against the sea wall. Stop for a spell and check out Brenton Point Park, a big kite flying spot. Beautiful views, a perfect Sunday drive. My uncle likes to catch littlenecks out here in the summer months.

It is my opinion that Doris Duke's Rough Point is one of the most stunning properties in Newport. Billionaire Tobacco heiress Doris Duke founded the Newport Restoration Foundation and continues to keep so many historic houses in our city in good repair. The grounds of Rough Point feel otherworldly, I don't know how to explain it. Stop by & say hi to the two topiary camels, Baby & Princess who were at one point ACTUAL CAMELS. I'm not kidding. Take the tour, it's so worth it.

This is a local favorite. Come down here to watch an epic sunrise and about a million surfers when the waves are good. This is one of those spots I like to just come and think. Take a nice long stroll down the beach, bring your dog (winter months only).

A sweet little spot in The Point district of Newport. This is the neighborhood my great grandparents settled in when they came over from Italy. Beautiful view of the Newport Bridge from here, and there's a tiny little water access spot (Blue Rocks). This neighborhood is nice to stroll around in, a lot of historic houses here. Good sea glass spot.

I was going to say that this place would be great if you have kids but I'd be lying if I said I didn't stop here on my own to say hello to the goats. Karla & Co. make amazing cheeses & caramels, and there is a farm stand on the premises where you can buy farm produce & eggs as well. Simmons farm also hosts goat yoga AND goat hikes in the warmer months. Check their website for more info.
