A classic is enduring. just like the ocean, it doesn’t try to be. It just is.
A visit to The Classic Coast—nine vivacious and historic cities all sharing some seriously prime geographical area coastline—is each everything you expect and agreeably unpredictable. This can be an area and country product of surf and soul; raised by the ocean and designed by eccentric and outspoken rebels some 300-plus years ago. If you’re trying to find classic Colonial design and breathless geographical area landscapes, Newport is your destination.
Newport is a city set on Aquidneck Island in the New England state of Rhode Island. Its yacht-filled harbor hosted the America’s Cup, a renowned annual sailing regatta, for many years. Newport is also known for the Gilded Age mansions lining Bellevue Avenue, some of which are now museums. The most famous is The Breakers, an 1895 mansion patterned after a Renaissance palace.
