We usually go to Newport in the spring or summer, when the weather is at its best, the mansions of the Preservation Society are open, and the gardens are lovely. But this was the second time we went in the winter and we did have a terrific time. If you’ve never been, Newport is a great place to visit – tons of history, the water, and those grand testaments to the “Golden Age” at the coast.
A trip to Newport wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Brick Alley Pub. We always go there our first night in town. Nothing fancy. Just simple food, served fast and fresh in a fun spot.
My kids have always loved that old truck parked in the middle of the restaurant. After dinner, we always need a walk through town to work off some of that food.
I’ll be back with more photos of the rest of our trip this week. Hope you had a terrific weekend
