Portsmouth is a great place to stay while you are exploring Newport as some of the city’s most popular attractions are close. Two destinations that should be on every visitor’s list is the wonderful Blithewold Mansion Gardens and Arboretum and the iconic Prescott Farm. Also, well worth the effort are Aldrich Mansion and the Goddard Memorial State Park.
There are a number of picturesque outdoor attractions here as well so make sure you enjoy the nearby green spaces. Breathe in the fresh air, play catch with the kids and enjoy some sunshine at nearby Second Beach in Middletown and Easton's Beach.
Work on your backswing at the Newport Country Club, amongst the best greens around.
A prominent feature on the Newport skyline is Dunkin Donuts Center, Providence, the main stadium for the Providence Friars college basketball team in winter and the Providence Bruins ice hockey team. Dunkin Donuts Center, Providence is also a popular venue for concerts and entertainment.
After enjoying Portsmouth, stay the night in one of the area’s popular hotels or serviced apartments. The Best Western The Mainstay Inn, the Newport Harbor Hotel & Marina and the Hotel Viking - A Noble House Hotel are among the best places to find a warm welcome and a good night’s rest.
