No longer is it just for the wealthy, now you can visit Newport and the surrounding area and enjoy all the amazing architecture, historical homes, beautiful galleries, unique shops, and high-quality restaurants. There’s also plenty of family-friendly activities, welcoming beaches, and gorgeous hikes. They call Newport County the Classic Coast for a good reason.
