On our first day in Newport, we decided to just walk around and get a feel for the place. J went to Newport years ago, but it was time to see what was new since his last trip.
If you've never been (or even if you have), there were basically 2 main drags we spent time on: Thames Street, which runs along the waterfront, and Bellevue Ave., which is close to our apartment and leads to all the old mansions that make Newport famous. Here are some pictures of our day:
At the beinning of our walk. I think I see the ocean!
The Newport Museum of Art
The original Naval Academy
The Isaac Bell House, one of the mansions that's open for the summer to tour. Not quite open yet, but we got to learn about it during our visit.
Spring is coming to Newport!
