Newport, Rhode Island

A major 18th century port city, Newport, Rhode Island is now best known as a delightful fall retreat and home to the famous Newport Mansions. Fall is the perfect time to visit, while Rhode Island is showing its brightest colors. Newport’s greenery transforms into bursting autumnal colors, providing breathtaking views of the iconic New England fall foliage. Guests of The Chanler at Cliff Walk have front row seats to these vibrant colors and their waterfront luxury destination. 

Rhode Island is filled with events and festivals all year. Whether you are visiting for a weekend getaway, a wedding, or for leisure, experience Newport’s true charm and beauty, from taking on Newport Restaurant Week to going on scenic drives that showcase the town’s dreamy landscape. Be sure not to miss Bowen’s Wharf Seafood Festival, Newport Mansions Food & Wine Festival or Newport Restaurant Week.
