Travel Tips for Newport

Beavertail Point

by Geoff_Wright

Beavertail Point on the southern tip of Conanicut Island in Jamestown. This is the view along the rugged coast towards Newport itself. The Beavertail Lighthouse is just out of site, to the left, and the original light was built on the spot where I am standing, in 1749.

The Best Nachos I Have ever had!

by cjg1 about Wharf Pub & Restaurant

Our first visit here was after experiencing dissapointment at the food selection of the Food Festival we wandered into the Wharf Pub. We had a seat at the bar area. There was plenty of room in the dining room but we decided to relax and hang at the bar instead. I orderd a Magner's and Liz had a glass of Sauvignon Blanc. We were having a good time enjoying each others company and awaiting for Liz's official birthday at 1:13pm. The bartender was very nice and kept our glasses full.

After some time we decided we needed a snack. We ordered the nachos. Minutes later this huge platter arrived. The chips were piled high with salsa, cheese, onions, beans, sour cream and tomatoes. This were the best nachos I have ever had! They were delicious and totally satisfying.

This was a comfortable place and we had fun watching football on TV and ineracting with some other patrons.

This has become a place that we come every tme we are in Newport for some drinks or a ite or two. The nachos are incredible!

Mrs. Vanderbilt's Birthday Present

by grandmaR

Marble House was completed in 1892 as a 39th birthday present for Mrs. William K. Vanderbilt. Her husband was the younger brother of Cornellius Vanderbuilt II (The Breakers). Ostentation does not bring happiness. Alva divorced William in 1895 and married Oliver Hazard Perry Belmont.

It was designed by the architect Richard Morris Hunt, inspired by the Temple of the Sun at Heliopolis (upon which Marble House's four Corinthian columns were modeled), the Petit Trianon at Versailles, the White House, and the Temple of Apollo. The cost of the house was reported to be $11 million, of which $7 million was spent on 500,000 cubic feet of marble. Marble House set the standard for Newport's transformation from a quiet summer colony of wooden houses to the a conglomeration of stone palaces for the very rich.

It is somewhat smaller than the normal 'cottage' because it does not have extra bedrooms for guests.

Admission to the Marble House is $10 for an adult and $4 for children 4-17. Under four free.

Newport Mansions, the Preservation Society of Newport County, which has owned Marble House since 1963. recommends that if you wish to visit several 'cottages' (they have 11 different properties) that you join the society. Individual memberships are $50/year or $90/year for a

Sailing on the Madeleine

by Herkbert

The Madeleine is a seventy-two foot, three-masted schooner that sails out of Newport harbor. You can book a trip, which lasts around 90 minutes, by just walking up to their kiosk at Bowen's Wharf. The trip finds you sailing Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay, where you can see the sites as you glide along the water.

Captain Tim and the crew provide narration along the way pointing out items of interest along the shoreline.

They sail a couple times during the day and also have a sunset sail available. The cost was about $28 per person.
