Newport, Rhode Island, legendary as the summer home of the super rich, does really swing in summer, with its famous Jazz Festival and other hot events.
But the time to really savor Newport is in the winter, when the huge crowds are gone and the town's true charm can be enjoyed in quiet moments. It's then that Newport takes on a romantic character, and the town's storied elegance heightens the feeling.
This atmosphere is best exemplified in Newport's classic inns, and three of them, grouped together as "The Legendary Inns of Newport" offer a particularly warm and inviting experience in the winter months.
The members of the group are: The Cliffside Inn, The Adele Turner Inn, and the Abigail Stoneman Inn, all conveniently located for touring Newport' famous mansions or enjoying its classic waterfront.
The Cliffside Inn, known for its lavish "high tea," has been one of Newport's most popular B&Bs; for many years. Its luxurious rooms are a perfect venue for that romantic getaway
to banish the winter blues. For more information, log on to their website, www.cliffsideinn.com.
The Adele Turner Inn is a unique B&B; that has turned themed rooms into an art form. Stay in "The Great Gatsby Room," for example, and you'll feel like you're in the Roaring Twenties.
