There are a smorgasbord of dining options in Newport, Rhode Island like the oldest operating
tavern in the whole United States the White Horse Tavern, built in 1673; I recommend a
beverage nestled close to the huge fireplace in the bar. However, if you are a steak person
definitely consider 22 Bowen's located on Bowen’s Wharf. If your pallet craves fish think Black
Pearl located on the next wharf. If you are looking for a NY style, small plate size, elegant food
think Fluke's Wine & Kitchen.
Newport is fortunate to offer a wide selection of B&B’s: I would have to head my list with the
Captain Simeon Potter House located on the water within an 8 minute walk from all of the
charming restaurants listed above, Inn at Castle Hill, next I would add the Cliffside Inn.
Consider a winter or spring get away to Newport, Rhode Island; one that keeps you cuddled
indoors or another that might take you to the Norman Bird Sanctuary on the hiking trails, the
Cliff Walk, Ocean Drive. A less ambitious get away would take in Newport Mansions. The
Redwood Library & Athenaeum is the oldest library in the United States.
Plan to visit Newport, RI this winter or spring.
