Getting away with the girls is good for your soul—and your sanity. Laughing till your stomach hurts, finishing each other’s sentences and indulging in a few too many margaritas are only a few of the advantages to taking a trip with your favorite women. If you’re looking for the perfect place to weather (and foliage because it is CRAZY gorgeous here) and schedule a Newport girls weekend? Here’s a few of our favorite activities.
Girls Weekend Getaway in Newport
Where to Stay in Newport
Castle hill inn
It doesn’t get more iconic than Castle Hill Inn. With stunning views of the coastline, private beaches, and charming rooms and cottages, the property also has an award winning on site restaurant. Castle Hill isn’t walking distance from downtown, so you will need a car if you’re staying at the property. If you’re looking for a luxury hotel in Newport, Castle Hill is one of the best.
While there are many places on the island to get food, we have a few favorites. The Clarke Cooke House offers up American-style food with plenty of seafood options and you can’t beat the ambience or the people watching.
A prime, somewhat secret spot for brunch, Belle’s Cafe is located in the Newport Shipyard and has a laid-back, yet delicious breakfast and lunch menu. Sip your coffee with views of the Newport bridge and mega yachts.
For authentic Mexican fare, Perro Salado can’t be beat. The casual vibe, tasty margaritas (try the spicy jalapeño) and varied menu options will leave you satisfied. You have to order the sticky ribs!
Pencil in some pampering. What’s a girls weekend without a little spa time? Stop in to Star Nails for mani/pedis.
Or if you’re in the mood for a massage The Bodhi Spa not only offers hydrotherapy, but also body treatments and facials.
Must-stop shopping spots.
The furniture, planters, ceramics, and gift items at Cottage & Garden are always eclectic and interesting. They have the best succulents around too.
Handcrafted in Rhode Island, the soaps, scrubs, candles, and lotions at the Shore Soap Company come in such pretty packaging you’ll want to stock up on Christmas gifts for family and friends.
Treat your skin with a visit to Farmaesthetics. You might have seen these 100 percent all natural products in luxury spas before, but this brick and mortar shop is where it all got started.
There are so many great festivals and events throughout the year in Newport, there’s no bad time to visit. Whether you want to hang at the beach, step back in time and see a bit of Gilded-Age history or indulge in some of New England’s best seafood the one thing you’re sure to have in Newport is a good time!
