My husband and I are trying to plan an affordable weekend getaway within driving distance of NYC for our first wedding anniversary at the end of June. We thought Newport would be a lovely trip- however we're on a somewhat tight budget and would like to cap our hotel at $150-$175 a night. Is that doable for Newport, particularly at the end of June? We are by no means looking for someplace fancy or extravagant, but being as it will be our anniversary, we're looking for something nicer than say, a Best Western. We're definitely open to B&B's, vacation rentals, etc.
If this doesn't sound doable for Newport, are there any other cute, quaint towns in the area that might be a little more affordable?
Any tips or recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
