Newport is a summer place for sure, but the City by the Sea has a lot going on off-season as well. On the day after Thanksgiving, s hosting a block party and boat parade from 4-8 p.m., allowing you to walk the wharf and/or dance to Caribbean-style steel drum music to make you feel warmer, while you watch illuminated boats parade on by.
Many shops, galleries and restaurants will be open as well, several offering block-party specials. And the following week is the Newport Holiday Stroll on Dec. 3, highlighted by the 46th annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony.
