We still return to our favorite places... the Mansions, Cliff Walk, walk the dog at Ft Adams or Kings Park and visit our favorite shops, restaurants and enjoy seeing the boats. We can be as close the the fireworks as we want and always enjoy them from the cockpit.

Newport is a great town full of American history, nautical treasures and friendly people and a jewel not to be missed.
I love Newport too. A can’t miss place when visiting the Northeast. Sailing capital. Not sure the 4th is its busiest as the Folk Festival draws an enormous crowd.

Every region of the country has its “star “ city or Port. I was thinking of Charlestown, San Diego, Seattle. All are can miss places with great history, attractions, and good sailing.
