Newport Turns Into A Winter Wonderland Each Year In Rhode Island

Love it or hate it, another New England winter is upon us in Little Rhody. Though the season may at times seem daunting once the snow begins to accumulate, there are also so many reasons to welcome the return of the beauty of winter. Sure, you may have to wake up a little earlier than usual to shovel your driveway, but nothing beats the peaceful silence of that first snowfall of the season when everything gets blanketed in a blissful snowy powder.  From Christmas towns to Polar Express train rides, the seasonal attractions are many, and each one offers something fun. There’s one town, in particular, that’s a must-see this season, and that’s Newport. Newport is the best winter town in Rhode Island, and after your visit, you’ll understand why! Let’s take a closer look

We're aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
