Please note the time that this site closes, as Bill Anonymous, Chuck and Bill Shearman found out, they will lock you in. And Anonymous can also attest, this is no Four Seasons."


Cliff Walk

"This is a great walk to do anytime of the day if you want to see how the other half lived. This walk goes along many of the mansion properties that were owned by the early socialites of the late 19th and early 20th century - the Astors, Vanderbilts, et al. If the weather cooperates, this can be a great place to relax and get some great views of the Atlantic Ocean. You can park on Memorial Blvd. which is metered. For those who are not up for a walk, but still would like to view the great history of this area, there are many guided tours (either self or with a guide) available. We have included these links to help your search. http://www.newportmansions.org/page3554.cfm http://www.newportchamber.com/ Fpr those who do not want to go for a walk, you can take a scenic drive down Bellevue Avenue to Ocean Drive."

"A great place to take the kids and tire them out! Lots of space to run around, have a picnic, put a line in and catch a few stripers, or just take in the views of Narragansett Bay. Please view the park's website to get up-to-date information on any fees or restrictions that may apply."
