Rhode Island Is Home To "The Most Welcoming City In The Nation"

Rhode Island may be the smallest state in the U.S., but those who live there know size isn't everything! Recently the rest of the country has taken notice of one particular city's outstanding attractions and hospitality.

Booking.com recently revealed the lovely seaside village of Newport as their choice for the most welcoming city in the nation. So if you’ve never paid a visit to this friendly town, now is the time to do so!

Enter Newport by crossing the iconic Claiborne Pell Bridge. This scenic span serves as the gateway to the city.

Choose your own adventure with a visit to one - or all - of Newport's iconic beaches.  Easton's Beach, Gooseberry Beach, and Bailey's Beach are just a few of the pristine shoreline spots beloved by locals and visitors alike.

Newport is also home to several magnificent coastal parks. Take a walk through history at Fort Adams or go fishing or picnicking at Brenton Point.

You won't want to miss the most popular attraction in Newport. The Cliff Walk is a gorgeous 3.5 mile coastal journey along the edge of the shoreline.

As you stroll the Cliff Walk, you'll be treated to views of some of the city's exquisite mansions. The Cliff Walk is self-guided, but you can also take a full tour through Newport's historic gilded age homes.

Seeing the sights in the nation's most welcoming city is sure to make you hungry. Head down to the working waterfront to enjoy dinner with a view of the wharf.

And don't forget to take a stroll along the streets of downtown Newport where local shops and stunning architecture will captivate your senses.

Newport is a city that welcomes its visitors with seemingly endless attractions, history, dining, shopping, and coastline views. Make your plans to visit this friendly city-by-the-sea today!
