Set on an island in Narragansett Bay, Newport has evolved from a bustling colonial port to a 20C resort for the fabulously rich and famous to its present incarnation as a modern tourist mecca. The famed mansions here provide an architectural sampler of the nation's most aesthetically pleasing building styles from the 17C to the 19C. The city sponsors several renowned music festivals for folk, jazz and classical music.
