At Christmastime, Newport, Rhode Island Has The Most Enchanting Main Street In The Country
There’s never a bad time to be a Rhode Islander, but the holiday season is an especially magical time to live here — especially if you happen to live near the charming little city of Newport. Christmas in Newport lasts all December long, with events and displays all over town. But all you have to do to get into the holiday spirit is take a stroll down Thames Street, otherwise known as Newport’s Main Street, and take in the seasonal sights.
