Newport Rhode Island Cruise Ship Tracker, Webcams & Travel Guide
Newport is a seaside city on Aquidneck Island in Newport County, Rhode Island, United States. It is located 30 miles (48 km) south of Providence, and 70 miles (110 km) south of Boston. Known as a New England summer resort and for the famous Newport Mansions, it is the home of Salve Regina University and Naval Station Newport which houses the United States Naval War College, the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, and a major United States Navy training center. A major 18th-century port city, Newport has much of the surviving colonial buildings of any city in the United States. The city is the county seat of Newport County (a county that no longer has any governmental functions other than court administrative and sheriff corrections boundaries). The population was 24,027 as of 2013. The social scene at Newport is described in Edith Wharton's novel The Age of Innocence. Wharton's own Newport "cottage" was called Land's End. Today, many mansions continue in private use. Hammersmith Farm, the mansion from which Jackie Kennedy was married, was open to tourists as a "house museum", but has been purchased and reconverted into a private residence. Many other mansions remain open to tourists. Still others were converted into academic buildings for Salve Regina College in the 1930s, when owners could no longer afford their tax bills.
