Newport isn’t necessarily viewed as a kid-friendly destination, what with all the fine dining and antique shops and wild summer nightlife and the potentially catastrophic breakables at the Breakers and the other Newport mansions. But the City by the Sea is actually tons of fun for children, especially active kids whose idea of a good day involves flying kites, playing with lobsters, and spotting seals.
Here’s a dozen ways to play with your kids on your next Newport visit:
- The Save the Bay Seal Watch
- Easton’s Beach carousel and aquarium
- Fishn’ Tales Adventures
- The Jamestown Playground
- The International Tennis Hall of Fame
- Brenton Point State Park
- Newport Gulls baseball
- The Cliff Walk
- Ryan Family Amusements arcade
- Kilwin’s Ice Cream
- The Brick Alley Pub
- Kids’ spa treatments at SpaFjor
