Newport RI Events

November 2009

Yes, there are many great Newport RI events going on, even in chilly November!

You can't go sailing or to the beaches (unless you're really brave), but there's still plenty to do in the "City by the Sea".

So come on down (or up or over, depending on where you are) and visit Newport Rhode Island during November.
