Newport also boasts of many 18th century homes, restaurants and shops in its downtown, but if you are tired of cultural density, there is always an opportunity to shift focus to the waterfront. The seaside location of Newport means that you are welcome to enjoy boating around the unknown shores in the area. In fact, Newport profits from being bounded with water serving as the world's greatest sailing city.
As you are in Newport note the city goes beyond its surface face of yachting port towards world-class jazz, blues, folk, classical music, and film festivals held annually. But today's Newport also enjoyed prominence in the earlier years when it had served as trading center in colonial times and in the 19th century as a resort for the wealthy.
Today only colonial-era architecture and luxury villas are reminders of its past days, while the city earned a new symbol epitomizing its modern beauty - pineapple. This was a sign of welcome brought to modern Newport from its commercial past when traders of this fruit put a pineapple outside their warehouses to attract customers.
This tradition also came to numerous hotels in Newport as a sign of their hospitality. If you want the city to greet you with pineapple at your doorstep then you should book with Booked.net.
