    Users Assigned: Kazmi  

    One of New England's oldest towns, and one of America's first playgrounds for the super-rich, Newport, Rhode Island has been a land of splendid resorts, motels, and breakfast spots through the whole year for families to joy.

    This seaside town has shopping, great dining and plenty of tourist attractions along cobblestone streets. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, Newport comes alive as one of the biggest college party towns in New England. Don't miss the Newport mansions, summer homes of America's early industrial giants around the turn of the last century, such as the Vanderbilts and the Astors.

    Trinity Church and Fort Adams are also major attractions. Between the mansions and the ocean is the Newport Cliff Walk, a paved trail along the ocean that offers great views of both the sea and the mansions. Rich in history dating back to the 1600s, Newport has long since been considered a center of maritime activities. Not only did it used to host the America's Cup regatta, but the United States Navy has also had a long-time presence here as a center of its underwater warfare center, surface warfare, and the Naval War College.

    The Naval Academy was temporarily based in Newport during the Civil War and JFK trained at its PT Boat school during WWII. Newport is also home to the Tennis Hall Of Fame and miles of beaches.

    • Rhode Island
      While it might be the smallest state in the U.S., and you might be able to drive across the width of it in 45 minutes, and yes, it was the last state to ratify the Constitution of the United States, Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, more commonly known simply as Rhode Island, or “The Ocean State”, is nevertheless a wonder to behold. With over 400 miles of coastline on the easternmost border of the United States, and cities such as Providence, Narragansett, and Pawtucket, there's definitely more than meets the eye to this tiny state.

      Despite having just over 1 million people within its borders, and being the smallest state, Rhode Island is nevertheless full of pride when it comes to what the state has to offer. And rightfully so, because there's just as much history here as there is in states such as Pennsylvania or Massachusetts. Rhode Island is one of the original 13 colonies who declared independence from British rule, and places like Providence and Newport have been around since nearly the inception of the country. Meanwhile, Pawtucket was the starting place of the American Industrial Revolution, and set against the backdrop of the Blackstone River makes for one of the most picturesque New England towns in the nation.

      Meanwhile, the coastal scene of Rhode Island is nearly bursting with opportunities, from the world-famous Cliff Walk along the Atlantic coast, to Block Island, Narragansett Bay, or Aquidneck Island, home to the “City by the Sea”, or Newport as it is more commonly known. The headquarters of Brown University at College Hill combines 18th-century wood-framed houses against the setting of Providence itself for a positively breath-taking experience. All in all, the combination of scenic beaches, New England atmosphere, and American history make for a trip that should definitely be part of your itinerary, regardless of what time of year it happens to be.

    • Providence

      Providence, Rhode island's state capital is a fighter. After its trade departed for the South in the 1950s, it’s jumped back as a cultural centre with a flourishing art group. Providences historic east side was safe the destroying ball in the built up urge of the 1960s, leaving entire sheet of foreign houses completed.

      Providence is divided in half by the Providence River, which until the last 10 years, flowed under the streets. In an urban beautification project led by the famous Mayor "Buddy" Cianci, the river was rerouted and again exposed with elegant paths along the banks and a frequent "Water Fire" event that turns the downtown area into a Venice-like celebration with gondolas tending to fires in metal baskets that run up the spine of the waterway - quite a sight in the summer, and a warming experience (as long as you have a hot cup of cocoa and a blanket) during the New England Winter. North of the river and I-95, is the quintessential Italian neighborhood on Federal Hill where some of this world's best restaurants are located (really).

      Don't forget the sprawling Roger Williams Park, and the downtown arts and theater districts as well.
