We visited in 1st week of April on Easter Sunday. Hence there were not many visitors. But we loved that. Almost had the whole beach to ourselves. Plenty of space to park. Amazing views of the Atlantic. Excellent for relaxation or beach fun. Worth visiting.

On a chilly April day, we set out on the cliff walk in Newport, RI. Two things occurred to me as we passed one stunning mansion after another: 1) this is the closest I have gotten to peeking into the expansive yards of Downton Abby-esque residences, and 2) I don't think such a cliff walk could be pulled off today....

The weather was great, the wind had died down from yesterday so we decided to take the Cliff Walk. We parked the car at Narrangasett Ave. and started the walk from there heading south. I was hoping to get pictures of the backs of the mansions but sea walls and the location of the Cliff Walk prevented me from taking... More

Had a beautiful weekend in Rhode Island and decided to finally get out to the Newport Cliff Walk. Normally, during tourist season (May-October) the Walk is PACKED with people and even though you are a RI resident, you have to pay for parking. We try to make it a point that during the off season, when the weather is good,... More

Just wish we had better weather, it was very windy. I can only imagine how nice it would have been on a beautiful day.

No better view any closer than the cliff walk. It goes for miles and allows you to see the gorgeous view close up.

In what was an extremely long winter it feels like we just spent the first nice day of spring in the perfect place, doing the cliff walk. Was very nice and had some amazing views of the ocean. Was fun watching the waves break off the rocks. Also the trail gives you a unique perspective of some of the mansions... More

The Cliff Walk is a great free outdoor activity when in Newport. The views are stunning - both of the water and the mansions/houses alongside the walk. The path is generally paved although there are some instances where it's rocky or goes through tunnels. Overall, wonderful outdoor experience.

The Cliff Walk is one of a kind when visiting Newport. It runs along the edge of the water. There is a hotel there and when walking/running the path you get to see the huge mansions along the way. It runs for a few miles so put on your running or walking shoes. Great stroll with your significant other.
