Ahhh, summer in Newport!
Although Newport's beautiful year-round, and there's always something fun going on, there's no better time to be here than summer!
So what are you waiting for? Book your accommodations today, and come enjoy everything the "City by the Sea" has to offer:
Some of August's highlights:
If you want to let me know about a great event that's going on, or want to promote your own event, feel free to do so by adding it to our Event Calendar
- Newport Jazz Festival
- "Homage" by Leon Morris
- 9th Annual Walk for the Children
- Family Night Concert Series at Easton's Beach
- Newport Comedy Series
The Cafe has gotten a makeover, and is now serving up some of the best food in Newport! If you haven't been here in awhile, you've got to come by and check it out.
This is a great spot to watch a game on their 60" flat-screen TV, shoot some pool, throw some darts and even hold an event, such as a bachelor or retirement party.
Looking for a DJ for an upcoming party or event? Get in touch with my old friend Mark Gordon of Rock-A-Shop Sound, and he'll take good care of you. He specializes in reggae, but can play any type of music at any venue.
You can also see Rock-A-Shop playing down at The Pier every Tuesday night during the summer. Beautiful sunset, great music and some Red Stripe beer. What better way to spend a Tuesday night?
New Prints Available in the Newport Shop!
Check out the Newport Shop to see some of the latest framed prints of the Newport Bridge, Goat Island Lighthouse, Narragansett Bay and much more!
Whether you need a gift for a loved one, a souvenir from your visit to Newport or a new mouse pad for your PC, you'll find it here.
New Cliff Walk Photos!
I've been waiting all year to get back up there to get some more shots of the Newport Cliff Walk. Finally, back in June, I got to visit and finish the second half with my mom.
If you've never seen the Cliff Walk in person, put it on your to do list. It's beautiful! See for yourself.
Segway of Newport
If you're looking for the best way to get around Newport during the summer, Segway of Newport is it. They've got a great selection of Segways, bicycles and electric bicycles.
I rented a bike from them when I was up there in June for my daily rides around the Ten Mile Ocean Drive. They also offer some great tours to show you around the city.
Another amazing shot from Aerial VR
Chris Blake of Aerial VR provided us with another of his 360 degree panoramic images, this one of the Castle Hill Lighthouse. Be sure to enlarge it to full screen to get the full effect.

Coming Next Month......
To be honest, I'm not sure what's coming next month! I do know one page for sure though: Swiss Village. Many people have heard of Swiss Village, but don't know what it is and haven't ever been there. Here's your chance to see some images from the inside!
My mother and cousin got over to Swiss Village for their annual Vistor's Day and got some great shots of this amazing property. It's only open once a year, so make sure you check it out next year if you haven't been yet!
