Newport is famous for its Gilded era mansions overlooking the sea; the first home of the U. S. Open in both tennis & golf; home to sailing's America's Cup and the Newport Car Museum.


Newport has one of the highest concentrations of colonial homes in the United States. It was summer home to both Presidents Kennedy and Eisenhower. President Kennedy and Jacqueline were married here, where she spend her growing up years.


On this tour, we explore the quaint New England village, inlcuding its water front; three National Register historic districts; Ocean Drive, with magnificent views overlooking the ocean and Castle Hill Lighthouse. We will tour one of the 19th Century ocean front mansions and visit your choice of either the America's Cup Hall of Fame; International Tennis Hall of Fame or Newport Car Museum (choose one of the three).  We will also spend time at Bowen's Warf, with its quaint boutiques, cafes and galleries. 


At some point(s) during the day, I will make sure you have the opportunity for some genuine New England style prepared seafood fare.
