UltimateMama and her family ventured to Newport, Rhode Island for some rest and relaxation this summer.  Although we had a short time to tour the city we made the most of it and had an amazing few days!

A few tips for a family friendly trip to Newport:

-Stay at Gurney’s Newport Resort and Marina on Goat Island.  Although you will want to take advantage of their shuttle service to enjoy the shops and restaurants in downtown Newport unless you want to drive and park.

-Have dinner at Scarpetta restaurant at Gurney’s. Great Italian food for all.

-Have some chowder at The Black Pearl on Bannister’s Wharf.  Best chowder ever!

-Try to finish an Awful Awful ice cream drink at Newport Creamery.

-Visit the International Tennis Hall of Fame. See the fun grass court.

-Hit the fun arcade at Ryan’s Family Amusement.

-Make a few glass paperweights or ornaments at Thames Glass.  They can ship them to your residence!

-Do the Cliff Walk to see beautiful mansions and walk the 40 Steps.  A must for all visitors to Newport.

Have a restful trip!
