As a native Newporter, I'm well versed in its history, the lay of the land and the multitude of exciting attractions and activities you will want to take in while you're here.

Allow me the opportunity to show you all that the "City by the Sea" has to offer you and your family.

Who knows, you may enjoy yourself so much that you'll want to visit Newport every summer!



Newport is everything a great vacation destination should be. The list of things to do here is endless. In one day, you could find yourself going from:

I love and appreciate Newport more and more as time goes on, and I know you will too!

Who knows, you may love it so much that you won't want to leave!

Whether you're a couple, family or traveling alone, the "City by the Sea" offers everything you're looking for in a vacation, summer home or even a new permanent residence. I know, because I've had the pleasure of growing up and living here for many years!
