We're going to Newport in late August. My wife and I want to do the mystery train ride. Is the Newport Dinner Train handicap accessible?

Also, are there any good breakfast spots in the area?


My response:

Hi Jim.

I checked with Bob at Newport Dinner Train, and this is what he told me:

Their rail cars are 1942-44 vintage. They are not handicap accesible but they have many handicapped patrons and they always assist them with arrivals and departures. The entry doors are not wide enough for wheelchairs.

For more info or additional assistance, contact Bob Andrews at 401-841-8700.

As for breakfast in that area, I recommend any of the following:

  • Ocean Coffee Roasters (22 Washington Square)
  • Franklin Spa (229 Spring Street)
  • People's Cafe (282 Thames Street)

Have fun and let us know how the ride was!
