Hello, I will ask the same question about Saint John NB Canada and the other ports of call on our cruise in late Sept 2012. What inexpensive things are there to do in Newport and the following ports we are visiting: Newport RI, Boston MA, Bar Harbor ME, Saint John NB Canada, Halifax NS Canada, Quebec City QC Canada ? We like to walk wherever we can from the ship (if possible) & we prefer to go to parks, nice sandy beaches, or just see sights on foot. Wherever we go at ports, we like to be SAFE and avoid potentially dangerous areas & situations. If we can't get any place by walking, then we could take an inexpensive taxi or bus ride to get to free or inexpensive places of interest. Any suggestions you might have & comments on the individual port is greatly appreciated! Thank You for your help!
