Despite Newport’s serious yacht culture, the gorgeous scenery can still be enjoyed with both feet on solid ground. Case in point: Sachuest Point is a close to three-mile oceanside hike through a wildlife sanctuary. This trail is home to birds, ducks, cottontail rabbits, and dozens of other species. Open all year long, Sachuest is a great option through the winter months when it’s less crowded and cooler. Take your time, watch the waves and hopefully spot a deer or two.
