    There's nothing like Newport

    Situated in one of the most stylish summer playgrounds in New England, Newport vacation rentals are a great way to sample the good life. This glamorous Rhode Island resort has been a favorite haunt of presidents, moguls, and movie stars since the mid-19th century. Many of the fabulous mansions built by the jet set of the day survive, including fine examples of the work of celebrated New York architect Richard Morris Hunt, who had a holiday home here. From the stunning natural beauty of Narragansett Bay to the gourmet seafood restaurants lining the downtown waterfront, Newport delivers the wow factor at every turn.

    Newport’s heritage highlights

    A stroll through the Newport Historic District is a perfect introduction to this storied city’s rich heritage. Boasting a wealth of well-preserved colonial buildings, Newport’s picturesque downtown is one of its biggest visitor attractions. Thames Street is a particular highlight, packed with colorful fashion stores and friendly cafés. Easton’s Point is one of the oldest neighborhoods, tracing its roots back to the American Revolution. A range of self-guided or expert-led tours will help you to get the most from your brush with Newport’s past—vintage trolley rides add an extra touch of authenticity, while private hire limos deliver A-list luxury.

    Holding the fort for Newport

    Fort Adams has been at the forefront of Newport life since its origins as a coastal fortification in 1799. The present building dates from the mid-19th century and is the focal point of Fort Adams State Park. The park’s prestigious sailing center has built on the legacy of the America’s Cup to create a bespoke facility for training and competitions. Eisenhower House dates from 1873 and was chosen by the golf-loving US President as his summer residence, largely due to its proximity to the championship greens of Newport Country Club. Fort Adams also hosts the city’s star-studded annual jazz and folk festivals.

    Newport through the seasons

    Rhode Island’s coastal zones benefit from a temperate climate, resulting in the hot, predominantly dry summers that enticed the first wave of celebrity vacationers. Demand for Newport vacation rentals near the beach reaches a peak during the high-season months of July and August. Late spring and early fall are still warm enough to enjoy outdoor pursuits such as sailing and fishing, while the cold snaps of winter lend themselves perfectly to bracing coastal walks and cozy fish suppers. Many Newport vacation rentals come with hot tubs or saunas to add a warm glow to the frostiest day.

    Newport’s natural attractions

    Narragansett Bay is the largest estuary in New England, encompassing marine, river, and island habitats and supporting a wide diversity of wildlife. Newport Harbor on the bay’s southern reaches forms part of this unique ecosystem. Seals, porpoises, dolphins, and whales are common visitors, while the bay provides a protective haven for endangered species such as the salt marsh sparrow and the piping plover. From the balconies of Newport vacation rentals near the harbor, it’s possible to spot many native and migrating seabirds, so don’t forget to pack your binoculars.
