“Thereâ€™s a good reason Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy chose Newport, Rhode Island, for summer escapes by the water,” writes John Giuffo, of the well-known business and lifestyle magazine. “First, consider the draw of one of the most enchanting stretches of shoreline on the East Coast, a seascape best viewed while taking a trip down the dramatic ten-mile twist of Ocean Drive. Then thereâ€™s Newportâ€™s time-traveling charm, its ability to whisk you away to other periods in American history by way of well-preserved colonial-era homes and Vanderbilt mansions.”
The many charms of Newport
While Newport’s charms are well-known here in Rhode Island, they are even better known, and lauded, nationally and internationally. To name its prettiest towns for 2012,Â Forbes editors relied on recommendations by experts from the Travel Channel,Â National Geographic, the author of a book about towns in the Northwest, and Fodorâ€™s. Newport pulled raves across the board.
“Like a town stuck in time but with the occasional hole in the space-time continuum to allow for modern touches, Newport, with its stunning harbor and bevy of old homes, is the quintessential New England town,” crowed Forbes, citing the town as “chief among American small towns in the category of most well-preserved colonial homes and Gilded-Age mansions â€“ a testimony to its tony residential reputation, and to its history as the summer destination of choice from 1953 until around 1963.”
