Jane Stuart Cottage
This is Jane Stuart Cottage, built about 1840. Located in Mill Street, it is a charming property, and I felt I wanted to knock on the door, and ask if I could have a look inside, haha.
I couldn't find any information on 'Jane Stuart', but I guess she was the original inhabitant.
Newport Regatta Club
Located on Goat Island. Take advantage of the amazing views of the harbor and Newport Bridge. Pack a sandwich and chill on the gorgeous green lawn and ocean wall. It's private, but I've been several times and no one has been there to bother me. They hold events like weddings, etc. so if you see a bunch of people, turn the other way. Find Goat Island by driving straight on the road next to "the Gap" clothing store in downtown Newport. Or just ask....
Not Quite the Best Restaurant/Bar in town
This is the best bar/restaurant in town. Or so I used to think. They are famous for their frozen drinks. But on multiple occations lately I have sensed a down turn in the quality of said drinks.
Sadly the same goes for the food lately as well. Hopefully its just a series of unfortunate food and drink events. But one never knows for sure and everyone has their limit before they wont come back. I am not yet there. But understand if you choose a different place or come back and tell me it was great.
The 13 acre Breakers Estate was built as the Newport summer home of Cornelius Vanderbilt II, a member of the wealthy United States Vanderbilt family. Designed by renowned architect Richard Morris Hunt and with interior decoration by Jules Allard and Sons and Ogden Codman, Jr., the 70-room mansion boasts approximately 65,000 sq ft (6,000 m²). of living space. The home was constructed between 1893 and 1895 at a cost of more than seven million dollars (approximately $150 million in today's dollars adjusted for inflation).
Newport Harbor Cruise
The best way to learn about Newport's history and culture is to take a narrated harbor tour. These are given daily during the summer. Hear all about Newport's rich and famous.
I was very lucky. Just as the boat approached its turnabout point, the Coast Guard training ship USS Eagle appeared off the port bow. This is where the Coast Guard Academy cadets spend their senior year. Seeing this beautiful ship was a special bonus.
