The grandeur of Newport is that of a long-ago era, one of robber barons and railway magnates, and, at first, it seems almost antithetical to what a modern New Yorker would want in a vacation spot. But, in fact, it is Newport's differences that make it so perfect; it's like everything you know is subverted, leaving you with a new perspective on the world. Enjoy the small-town, seaside charms, and marvel at the Gatsby-esque levels of architectural decadence. And don't forget to spend a day wandering the bird sanctuary, appreciating the duality between man-and nature-constructed wonders.
