Discover the scenic wonders of Newport by land and by sea! Board your guided transportation for a panoramic drive through Newport. Your narrated tour passes the town's historic section with its many authentic and restored buildings. See Trinity Church with its magnificent Georgian design, the Redwood Library, the oldest lending library in America, and get a glimpse of the Church of Saint Mary's, where Jacqueline Bouvier wed John Kennedy in 1953. A drive along a spectacular stretch of Ocean Drive affords glorious views of Newport's rugged southern coastline as well as famed Bellevue Avenue to view the fabulous summer cottages. After your land portion, you will board your cruising vessel. Experience the spirit of the Vanderbilt lifestyle aboard the "M/V Gansett," a restored classic wooden vessel. During your relaxing harbor tour you will learn more about Newport and your guide will point out major landmarks in "The City By The Sea."
