Parks and OutdoorsExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Explore Newport's history by foot on a variety of guided tours. They usually last around an hour and a half and range from nighttime lantern tours, to tours exploring American Revolutionary history, and even specialized tours that probe religion or African-American history.
  • You can match your general tour with specific explorations of unique places in Newport history, such as the Newport Colony House, or the Samuel Whitehorne House Museum. Since these tours are led by the local historical society you know they are on the up and up.
  • The Newport Historical Society also runs the Museum of Newport History, situated in a building from the 1700s. Here, you can see a concentration of the rich history of Rhode Island's most famed city.
