Sail About Newport On A Rhode Island Bus Charter
Newport Bus Rentals for Beach Goers, Shoppers & History Lovers
Long ago, America’s wealthiest families made Newport their summer playground. The opulent mansions built by the Vanderbilts, Astors and other Gilded Age families remain a popular attraction, providing visitors a glimpse at the extravagance of a bygone era.
But Newport is more than the famed mansions lining Bellevue Avenue. The seaside city, which is located on Aquidneck Island in Narragansett Bay, offers a wonderful mix of Colonial heritage, beautiful beaches, lively waterfront and cultural attractions. The city’s famed jazz and folk music festivals draw crowds every summer. The restaurants, however, are a year-round lure.
Whether you’re planning a corporate event, arranging wedding festivities or a family vacation, US Coachways caters to groups of all sizes. With an extensive fleet of vehicles that includes minibuses, party buses and 56-seat coach buses, we provide bus charters to locations throughout Rhode Island, including Providence. Add superior customer service, luxury amenities and affordable bus rental rates and US Coachways is an ideal choice for community organizations, church groups and schools as well as special events such as bachelor parties and birthday celebrations. Give us your destination and let us handle the rest.
Mansions, Music & More
Start the day body surfing at the local beaches and end it with after-dinner drinks on Bannister Wharf. Looking to fill the hours in-between? Newport offers plenty of attractions and points of interest. Below are some of the highlights you won't want to miss.
- Entertainment & Amusement Parks — From gambling to clam chowder cook-offs in the summer, Newport has plenty to entertain and amuse. Catch a concert at the Newport Yachting Center or enjoy an award winning improv comedy troupe at the Firehouse Theater. Visitors to Newport Grand Slots can wager anywhere from a penny to $10 on a single spin.
- Arts & Cultural — People travel from around the world to attend Newport’s famed folk and jazz music festivals. The Newport Art Museum, meanwhile, has a decidedly more local flavor, focusing on artists from Rhode Island.
- Restaurants & Shopping — Shopping and restaurants are a big reason Newport is such a popular travel destination. From the high-end shops lining Bellevue Avenue to the souvenir shops in the Brick Alley Market and the funky shops along lower Thames Street, there’s retail therapy to suit any budget and personal aesthetic. Bannister Wharf and nearby Bowen Wharf anchor the waterfront shopping and dining district where the Clarke Cooke House and the Black Pearl serve some of the best clam chowder in New England.
- Golf Courses & Sports Venues — Of course, Newport is home to great tennis and polo. The 13 grass tennis courts surrounding the International Tennis Hall of Fame are available for public play. In nearby Portsmouth, the Newport Polo Club hosts public exhibitions. For something a bit more proletariat, cheer on the Newport Gulls from the bleachers at Cardines Field. Golfers can play holes at the Green Valley Country Club.
- Historical Sites & Landmarks — This is a small city with a lot of history. The nation’s oldest synagogue was built in Newport before the American Revolution, and still stands today. So does the Naval War College and a litany of mansions with names like the Breakers, the Elms and Rosecliff. Meanwhile, JFK and Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy were married here at St. Mary’s Church. Yet it’s the Cliff Walk that’s considered one of the top attractions in Newport.
- Parks & Outdoor Activities — Newport beaches are plentiful, with some such as Easton's Beach (also known as First Beach) within walking distance of downtown. Go kite flying at Breton Point State Park. The beaches along Ocean Drive lure surfers year-round. Fort Adams is a favorite vantage point for many when the Tall Ships come to Newport. On nearby Jamestown Island, which is connected to Newport via the Newport Bridge, Beavertail State Park offers a lighthouse and rocky shoreline waiting to be explored.
- Other Points of Interest — Green Animals Topiary in Portsmouth is the oldest topiary garden in the United States with more than 80 shrubs cut to resemble animals, birds and ornamental designs. The Artillery Company of Newport has one of the best collections of foreign and domestic militaria. The Museum of Yachting was voted one of the top 10 museums of its kind by Sailing Magazine.
