A favorite thing to do when visiting Newport is have afternoon tea. Several of the inns in town provide this for their guests. You can sit down and enjoy a leisurely and light lunch that will typically include baked goods such as scones, finger sandwiches, and desserts of some kind all while sipping on a tea of your choosing. Takes you back what Newport might have been like any years ago.

There are several places that do this now, but there is only one that is open to the public: Spring Seasons Inn Tea Room (http://springseasonsinn.com/tea-room).

You can also check the Newport forums for more information.

So, get into the true spirit of Newport and spend an hour or so enjoying afternoon tea!
