A romantic getaway is the perfect reason for a trip to Newport, RI. Whether couples are celebrating 20 years of marriage or planning to pop the question, visitors are sure to find attractions and accommodations that suit their romantic plans perfectly. Here are three ways to plan a romantic vacation in Newport.

Stay at a Romantic Bed and Breakfast
This historic coastal town is known for its charming bed and breakfasts. Nestled throughout Newport, B&Bs like Ivy Lodge feature cozy, private rooms that offer the comfort of home and the amenities of a hotel—and then some. Nix the continental breakfast buffet and wake up to a freshly cooked meal before setting off to enjoy a day in the harbor. Come back to a beautiful, refreshed room. Repeat.

Visit a Vineyard
Tour the vineyards and sample wine at one (or more!) of Bristol County’s three wineries: Newport Vineyards, Carolyn’s Sakonnet Vineyards, and Greenvale Vineyards. Each offers its own specialty wines, made with locally grown grapes, that provide a distinct East Coast flavor. Find a favorite, grab a bottle, and take it back to the B&B to enjoy together after dinner. For those who prefer beer, Newport has breweries, too. Taproot Brewing Co. is located at the same location as Newport Vineyards, and Newport Craft Brewing & Distilling Company and Ragged Island Brewing Company are both nearby.

Experience the Cliff Walk
A popular Newport attraction, and with good reason, the Cliff Walk is the perfect way to experience both nature and history. As an escape from the stressful routines and hassles of everyday life, it’s a great opportunity to live in the moment and leave cares behind for a truly relaxing experience. Couples enjoy walking along the 3.5-mile path that borders the rocky shoreline, taking in the views of gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, Gilded Age mansions, and crashing waves. If an engagement is on the agenda, the Cliff Walk is the perfect spot for a proposal.
