Newport, RI, is fancy. Sure, the Hamptons are fancy and Palm Springs is fancy, but Newport takes things to the next level with beach cottages that are actually sprawling mansions — and yachts as far as the eye can see. But, even if you don't own a 200-footer or a house with a view, that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the charm of this quaint New England town.
And, after you hit Newport Folk Festival, or tour The Breakers, or enjoy the breathtaking scenery from the Cliff Walk, it's nice to take a breather and enjoy a few cocktails (and an oyster or two). You may not be a millionaire, but you can drink among them in Newport at the swanky bars ahead.
