Newport

Lila Loves

Famous for its gilded era mansions and world-renowned sailing, Newport has been the first name in luxury living for more than a century. Today, this city by the sea sports a growing downtown, fabulous dining, outdoor activities and increasing diversity. Play on a grass court at the International Tennis Hall of Fame, stroll the Cliff Walk trails overlooking the shore, tour a mansion, soak up the sun on one of the many public and private beaches, or treat yourself to a cocktail at one of the fabulous restaurants. With so many options, every day is a chance for new discovery all year round.

Neighborhoods

Bellevue Avenue

French for “beautiful view”, the Bellevue area lives up to its name and has long held the reputation of Newport’s most famous neighborhood. A National Historic Landmark since 1974, Bellevue is known for its incredible 19th-century mansions. Bellevue also runs back toward the center of town, connecting to the former Newport Casino (built by famed architects Mead, McKim and White) and now home to the International Tennis Hall of Fame.

Ocean Drive

With amazing water views and a rolling pastoral landscape that shows the signature touch of the genius garden and Central Park designer Frederick Law Olmsted, Ocean Drive is another contender for Newport’s most acclaimed address. Another National Historic Landmark district, the area is noted for its opulent, though less ostentatious estates and it’s wide array of beaches and country clubs.

Thames

Newport’s central nervous system, Thames Street makes up the heart of the historic waterfront downtown. Lined with shops, restaurants, and historic homes, Thames has a thriving, youthful energy that makes it one of the most exciting parts of town to live in. With wide ocean views and walking access to the best drinks and dining in the city, it’s easy to see why the Thames neighborhood has never been more popular.

Cliff Walk

Named for the 3.5-mile trail along the rocky bluffs, Cliff Walk makes up one of Newport’s biggest attractions. Sporting some of the finest homes in town, including the Italian Renaissance-style “The Breakers” estate built for the Vanderbilt family, Cliff Walk is almost unbeatably beautiful, even in the 21st century.
