A seaside town on southern Aquidneck Island, Newport is a community that caters to the boating culture and sailing lifestyle. From luxurious modern estate homes to Bellevue Avenue mansions, as well as spectacular vistas from Newport’s harbor, it’s no wonder so many people consider owning Newport RI real estate. With easy access to the mainland via the Pell Bridge, you can travel to and from the island with ease.
By the early 1700s, Newport’s community was flourishing as a result of commerce and the farming and fishing industries. During this time, visitors came from the Caribbean and the Carolinas to seek relief from the heat and humidity of the plantations. In the early years, naval shipping was just as important as private shipping. The fact that Newport was the “birthplace of the Navy” added to the community’s cosmopolitan atmosphere.
