Newport's Old Quarter The Arts & Culture Neighborhood

Newport's storied history still thrives in the Old Quarter. Stately trees and striking 18th- and 19th-century buildings, including the country's largest collection of Colonial houses, line its charming narrow streets. The heart of this city by the sea is packed with museums, places of worship, and other fascinating sites that document its role as America's welcoming harbor of religious freedom. Experience the Old Quarter's living history in its galleries, shops, taverns, restaurants, and on the vibrant streets of this timeless arts-and-culture neighborhood.
