Glorious views from the Pell Bridge which drops you very close to the center of Newport. There is a $2 toll to cross each way, but you get a sensational view of the Newport harbor, islands, Navy War College, and the nautical life of the port.
It's a bridge that can be seen from many vantage points around the city but also from as far up the bay as my Pawtuxet village.
The Pell Bridge is reached from Interstate 95 to Rte 4 south to Jamestown Bridge onto Jamestown Island to Pell Bridge and over to Newport. We are a state known as the Ocean State, after all.

This tip is not specific to Newport. It is merely a comment on a new technology that is changing the way that we travel and access the information that we need as we do. It is called GPS! The global positioning system which accesses locational data by satelite is now accessible to mariners, hikers and drivers. Car systems can give you street by street directions in your own language, pretty much anywhere in the world, as well as all kinds of convenient help. Some of them are small enough to carry around with you.. More on this later..

The state of Rhode Island has way too much traffic. I recommend, if you can, take the bus or ferry to Newport.
I think Newport is fairly easy to walk around. But, if you want to 'mansion hop' you may need a car. Unless you can find a tourist bus or something like that.

Most places are not too bad of a walk, especially with all the nice shops to see on the way. You can also rent a bicycle and cruise around. For others you will probably have a car already if you made it here.

The most scenic way to arrive in Newport is by water.By car, it's nice to arrive from the East via the Jamestown & Newport bridges. ($2 toll)
