Newport, RI is one of the USs oldest towns. Eat quahogs and clamcakes until you burst and wash them down with Del's famous lemonade.

I’ve been to Newport before and so did not do any excursions. Walked around town after a short tender ride and had a nice lunch. It’s a very walkable town with plenty to see right off the tender even on your own. Historic Trinity Church and it’s tiny old churchyard right across from tender port are open to the public. Lots of nice shops as well. Would recommend walking part of the cliff walk, although we did not on this trip. Note that it’s not near where the tender port is, nor are the mansions. Unless you have a special interest, I would not do more than one mansion as they can be repetitive. Definitely do a guided tour or at least an audio tour for the best experience.

Let’s start this off by saying Newport is beautiful, the beaches there are amazing, and the “store plaza” was great too! The only negative I have about this place is just how some people there are snobby.
