The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Stretch Your Buck in Newport


4. Insider's Tip

The roof deck at the Vanderbilt.  

Resist the urge to book one of Newport’s overpriced Champagne cruises. Instead, watch the sunset from the open-air roof deck of the Vanderbilt hotel, which serves cocktails to the public despite the widespread perception that it’s a private club. Sip your drink while spying nearby widows’ walks, and watch sailboats skim under the 400-foot-high Newport Bridge.
