Another day, another accolade for Newport, RI. Coastal Living Magazine has named Newport one of the 20 best places to live on the coast in the United States.
Here’s what they had to say about us:
Newport, Rhode Island
Sunny Days Per Year: 202
It’s no wonder the British occupied it during the American Revolution: Who wouldn’t want to live here? Set on the southern tip of Aquidneck Island in Narragansett Bay as it edges the Atlantic Ocean, the walkable, cultured New England city of Newport has always been a place of independent thinking and a hub of commerce. And life here—whether in a circa-1700s saltbox near the lively wharfs (lined with yachts of every size), in colorful Victorians just outside downtown, or in breathtaking estates that keep company with the world-renowned mansions of Bellevue Avenue and Ocean Drive—feels like something out of a storybook. Sorry, Brits. It’s ours now.
If you’re visiting Newport, book your stay at Gurneys Newport Resort & Marina, they are hands down the nicest hotel in Newport and their seaside location on Goat Island with 360° water views and the seclusion of a private island is just a jaunt from the shops and eateries of downtown Newport.
We also love the new Cambria Hotel Newport, an upscale resort that features 143 suites, Johnny’s Restaurant & Patio Bar, and a wedding and event venue, which houses over 25,000 sq. ft. of event space. Just a quarter mile from Easton’s Beach.
If you’re looking for some great spots to dine, we recommend hitting up local favorites such as Tavern on Broadway with their Buck-A-Shuck Wednesdays, Norey’s (RI’s #1 craft beer bar) and the new 1908 Public Housewhich boasts the best burger in all of Newport!
Founded in 1999 by four college friends, Newport Storm Brewery was the original production craft brewery in Rhode Island. They created more than 100 distinctive beers while keeping things local and authentic. From their flagship Hurricane Amber Ale to seasonal brews made with Rhode Island grown ingredients, to beers aged in rum barrels, the brewery has been in the vanguard of craft brewing for nearly 20 years.
In 2006 the crew began distilling craft spirits. They were the first distillery in Rhode Island in 135 years and currently produce whiskey, a single barrel rum, and an overproof white rum.
