A Little Glamping in Newport RI

TravelMeaghan White

Who knew the smallest state in size, would be an incredibly charming vacation spot? Maybe you did, but I had no idea! This past summer we decided to take a New England road trip, and Road Island was our first stop along the way. We spent two days in beautiful, Portsmouth Road Island, close to downtown Newport. We did a little glamping at Melville Campground and stayed in an adorable 1977 airstream camper. It had everything we needed, including wifi and tv. We decided to spend our morning drinking coffee and hiking around the picturesque Melville pond, followed by a delicious breakfast at Cindy's Country Kitchen. During the day we went downtown and walked the streets of Newport, taking in scenes of the  the Grand Mansions . We enjoyed walking around the Vanderbilt's, Marble House, trying to picture what life was like back in the day. You can choose to see just one house or all of them. We chose to see just one. Anyone else been to Road Island? I'd love to know what some of your favorite spots were.
