The prototypical American seaside resort, Newport has been described as “America’s first resort,” “a shining gem in the coastal crown of New England,” and “the quintessential playground of American aristocracy.” Newport, RI real estate, in particular the Newport Mansions that were built here during the Gilded Age, are famous around the world and provide visitors with a glimpse into the opulence of a bygone era.
The 19th century elite who built these summer “cottages” have long gone, but their legacy remains—not only in the mansions themselves, but in Newport’s continuing status as the country’s premier resort. Newport’s history dates back much further than the Gilded Age, however. Look past the grand estates and you will still see myriad traces of its beginnings as a colonial port town, including narrow cobblestone streets lined with colonial-era homes and buildings.
