Welcome to Newport County
Experience America’s Gilded Age in Newport, Rhode Island! Known as the 19th-and 20th-century summer getaway spot for America’s wealthy, the most prominent landmarks come in the form of opulent “cottages” in the Bellevue Avenue Historic District. Gawk as you tour The Elms, Rosecliff and the 70-room Italian Renaissance crown jewel, The Breakers. And, before you start to feel a little too rich, take the Servant Life Tour at The Elms to get a glimpse of how the not-so-rich-and-famous lived. Newport also has a competitive side, being home to America’s Cup yacht racing. Charter your own yacht or take sailing lessons in Newport Harbor. Then stop by the International Tennis Hall of Fame and Museum to relive some of the sports’ greatest moments. There’s nothing quite like Newport!
