Nine Coastal Towns. One Big Experience.
Discover Newport is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting Newport and the eight coastal communities that surround it. For more than 375 years, we’ve been welcoming visitors from near and far. It’s how this charming enclave earned its moniker, America’s First Resort. Our destination has evolved from a haven for religious dissenters, a prominent Colonial Era port and Gilded Age playground to a locale ripe with art, culture and history. Throughout our nine coastal communities, explore miles of unspoiled beaches, scenic trails, distinctive shops, renowned restaurants, diverse accommodations and world-class events: its our past, and our present, that makes this place original. Let us help guide you on your trip through the City by the Sea.
