Newport, Rhode Island, US
Sail into Narragansett Bay, passing the expansive lawns of some of the town’s “summer cottages” built by the Captains of Industry in an age before income taxes. Some of these opulent mansions are open to visitors, or you can view them from the famous Cliff Walk. The town also hosts the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Vintage 12-meter America’s Cup yachts are available for sailing excursions on the bay, or stroll the town’s oldest section, which boasts the largest collection of original colonial-period homes in the country.
