The Breakers

Formerly the home of one of America's wealthiest families, The Breakers is an architectural masterpiece and a canopy of long-standing history. Bathed in semblances of Beaux-Arts and Renaissance style, the mansion comprises a string of opulent rooms, a library, and an attic, among other things. An integral part of the Bellevue Avenue Historic District, The Breakers rests behind mighty wrought iron gates and is led by a tracery of pathways which slice through rolling, verdant lawns. These pathways, which slither along delightful gardens, are laden with a string of vibrant foliage including red maples, cedar, juniper, Japanese yews, and entrancing weeping beeches. The interiors of this mansion are adorned with effervescent chandeliers, intricately-designed capitals and myriad rooms which define sheer magnificence. Set amid a breathtaking setting of stark cliffs and clear blue waters of the sea, The Breakers tells myriad tales of the bygone glory of the Vanderbilts.

Fort Adams State Park

Established in the early 19th Century, Fort Adams sits at the harbor of Newport Bay. At the time of its construction, it was the largest of its kind in the United States, envisioned by the U.S. Navy as one of the key features of the defenses set up to safeguard the Narragansett Bay Area. Previously a US Navy and US Army base, the site was later acquired by the government in 1965 and revamped to be used as a state park. The aerial view of the park reveals a stone-enclosed fortress with a prominent bulwark facing the Narragansett Bay. Providing stunning views of the bay, the park now functions as a recreational spot offering facilities for family outings, picnics and various water sports. The highly-acclaimed Newport Jazz and Newport Folk Festivals are held here each year, and have featured performances by the likes of Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone.

Newport Artillery Company Armory

The Artillery Company of Newport is a ceremonial unit and museum of the Rhode Island Militia and Historic Military Commands. The unit provides honor guards and canon salutes for private and public veterans events and official local and state ceremonies. A museum of military uniforms and memorabilia is located at 23 Clark Street. This collection, one of the most extensive in the country, includes uniforms worn by His Royal Highness Prince Phillip and Lord Louis Mountbatten, both of Great Britain. Guided and self-guided tours are available. Admission is by donation.

The Elms

The Elms was built in 1901 as the "summer cottage" of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Julius Berwind and eventually became known as another summer residence for the burgeoning population of the nouveaux riches at the turn of 20th Century. Modeled after the mid 18th-century château d'Asnieres outside Paris, The Elms showcases the Berwind's collections of art and ceramics. Now a historic landmark, you can learn its history and appreciate turn-of-the century gracious living on an informative audio tour, or a more behind the scenes Servant Life tour.

Classic Cruises of Newport

Perfect for a corporate or private charter, this is the best way to see Narragansett Bay and Newport. Try the Classic Cruises of Newport where the 72 foot schooner, Madeline, or the high speed motor yacht from the prohibition era, Rum Runner II, can tour you around the waterways or in the bay for an ideal and memorable experience.

International Tennis Hall of Fame

All tennis buffs know that this is the place to visit while in Newport. The International Tennis Hall of Fame is truly a shrine to the sport, given its history and the well-preserved exhibits of immense significance. Found at Newport Casino, located on beautiful Bellevue Avenue amongst shops and eateries, the site is a perfect place to stop by and admire the lush, grassy tennis courts and the International Tennis Hall of Fame Museum, commemorating tennis pros from past and present.
