Visit the scenic and architecturally diverse city of Newport for the first time


This 90 minute road tour of Newport is ideal for the first time visitor to this city by the sea. As a local I can drive you around to point out the local attractions and diverse architecture that you'll want to go back to see on your own. We'll go down historic Bellevue Avenue and peek into places like the Tennis Hall of Fame with it's lovely grass courts and also travel further to see the Guided Age Mansions.

We'll take the ten mile Ocean Drive stopping at some breathtaking views for you to take photos. There are lovely locations you might not find on your own such as the lawn at Castle Hill where you will want to return for lunch on the terrace overlooking the Narragansett Bay.
On our return to downtown we could walk along the wharf area where as a local I could point out the award winning restaurants , coffee shops or to book a sunset tour on one of the schooners. Come with me for an overview of this scenic city and therefore a better travel experience.
