  • Architect’s Inn
    The 23-room Architect’s Inn was constructed in 1873 as the private residence of Newport architect George Champlin Mason. Today, bed and breakfast is well known for its interactive murder-mystery events, during which guests dress up in costume and participate in two-day whodunits. The five guest rooms feature private fireplaces and period furnishings, including four-poster canopy beds, embroidered linens, and floral wallpaper. A few rooms, such as the Redwood room and the Perry suite, even have Victorian claw-foot tubs. Modern touches include cable TV and DVD players, in addition to WiFi access. Less than half a mile west of Architect's Inn is a collection of historical mansions commissioned at the turn of the 20th century for affluent American families, including the Vanderbilts. Explore the 80 acres of gardens and parks on guided tours that illuminate the pioneering architecture, interior design, and social history of 11 landmark properties.

  • Newport Mansions
    The Preservation Society of Newport County protects and showcases Newport's one-of-a-kind architectural heritage. During tours of Newport's museum-houses, visitors get a glimpse into three centuries of American history, from the French Baroque styling of Rosecliff, high-Victorian splendor and fancy French name of Chateau-sur-mer. Tourists can trace the steps of some of America's most wealthy families as they explore latter-day castles such as Cornelius Vanderbilt II's The Breakers or the Isaac Bell House. Special events give guests a hands-on insight to the everyday people that worked in New England's most famous mansions, while annual occasions such as the Newport Flower show celebrate the treasured traditions and landscapes of Newport each year.

  • Firehouse Theater
    Every Friday, the Firehouse Theater hosts a merry evening of witty improvisational comedy, performed by Newport’s The Bit Players. Watch the zany troupe as they drolly play off the suggestions of the audience and make off-the-cuff remarks in a series of short-form skits. Firehouse Theater is BYOB, so show-goers are obliged to bring beer, wine or a cask of aromatherapy bathtub gin. For teetotalers, free hot teas, cocoa, and cookies accompany every performance, helping audience members feel welcome, cozy, and primed for incessant giggling in the 49-seat theater.
