Driving along an American highway and experiencing the freedom of the road is like one of the best feelings ever. To really get the American feeling even when you are actually a tourist on holiday for a couple of weeks, is fantastic and a life lasting memory. For example, start your trip in New York, rent a car here to drive down to Philadelphia and then direction DC Washington. After this drive through Buffalo to see Niagra Falls. Of course, along the way, there are many places to stop.
Then from Niagra Falls back to New York and straight through Massachusetts to Boston!
New Port in Rhode Island is a beautiful place to visit. Displaying a lovely harbor, there is no place quite like it. It’s “beachy” yet rustic, inviting, and very homey. The people are so kind and it’s famous for their delicious clams. Because of its beautiful location on the coast, the presence of the harbor and the colonial atmosphere that the city still exudes everywhere, Newport is a popular place to visit and also called the port capital of America.
The colonial atmosphere is still strongly present in Newport. Particularly in the Newport Historic District many colonial houses can be found that was completely restored at the end of the twentieth century. The houses of the former rich landowners have also been refurbished and often still inhabited. You can follow the Newport County Colonial Landmark Trail to take a dip in early American history. You will see, for example, Chase-Cory House and Hunter House. For a walking route and more information, visit the Newport Gateway Center at 23 America's Cup Avenue.
Those who know and think of Newport, Rhode Island, conjure up images of wealthy America, given the famous mansions and lavish lifestyles that went on inside those oversized cottages. Today, you can still see the lifestyles of the rich and famous through a mansion tour, but Newport has evolved in different ways to please tourists. There's a wealth of shopping, dining, lodging, recreation and, yes, traffic that makes this legendary community a bustling, New England tourist destination. Of course, there are endless scenic coastal views that can never be taken away, no matter how much Newport develops as an international vacation destination. A prime example: The Cliff Walk that extends a few miles above the sea, affording amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean.
