Luxury Travel x Newport Rhode Island

Newport Rhode Island, a summer vacation destination, where the yachts are aplenty and the architectural wonders are revered national landmarks. Bellevue Avenue, a historical district, is home to some of the most exclusive museums, including the world famous Breakers mansion, built in 1895, it’s a Renaissance dream and once residence to the Vanderbilt family, now run by the Preservation Society of Newport County. Set on the Atlantic Ocean, the Ochre Point Avenue Gilded Age palace boasts a vast garden, 70 rooms, 5 floors and interior decor from Africa, France and Italy. Equally splendorous is Salve Regina University, the 80-acre campus is set on 7 estates with breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean.

The festivities continue at Thames Street with a lineup of specialty shops. Tibet in Newport offers a range of artisan creations from Nepal, India and Tibet. Virgin & Aged houses savory oils from across the globe, complete with a tasting room. The keffiyeh scarves at Army Navy Surplus come in an array of colors and styles, all imported from India.

For right-off-the-boat freshness, dine at Benjamin’s Raw Bar, and enjoy a lobster burger overlooking the harbor at The Lobster Bar. Find out what the best sleep of your life feels like, while delighting in waterfront views and quick access to Easton’s Beach when you plan your stay at Cambria Hotel & Suites Newport.
