Newport Rhode Island Blog

The Newport Rhode Island Blog is my mini-journal about Newport. It'll keep you updated on any new pages on Newport Discovery Guide.



It will also update you on things that I think you may be interested in, such as:
Eat, shop and sightsee on historic Bowen's Wharf



You can also click on the Google, Yahoo and other buttons below the navbar if you have a personalized home page on any of those sites. That way you can check us out whenever you want.
