This is the best place to get all the information you need about Newport and the surrounding towns. Jennifer is super helpful, friendly and very knowledgeable about Rhode Island. She gave recommendations about restaurants, tours, and nightlife. Can not wait to go back.

The friendly staff and wealth of information makes it the first stop if you are just arriving in Newport. Mansion tickets, as well as trolley tickets can be purchased here. They can answer any question.

I went to the counter, and Dennis, the staff member, was very professional, courteous, knowledgeable and 'down right' helpful. I highly recommend taking a few moments to listen to the offerings Dennis mentions and you will be glad you did!

This is the place to start your visit to Newport Rhode Island if you have never been there before, or to refresh yourself with all that Newport has to offer. It is just as you come into town by the Marriott
