Welcome to Newport!
I was born and raised on Aquidneck Island, but it wasn’t until I’d lived all over the country that I realized how truly special it is here. After living in New York and Los Angeles for several years, we returned home in 2013 and never looked back. There’s so much to love: beautiful snowy hikes in winter, incredible days on the water come summer and stunning foliage in the fall. This community is full of great people, stunning landscapes, rich history and charm. I hope you love our beautiful, peaceful island as much as we do.
