Fall in Newport

We are a couple in our 50s, with a lot of flexibility. We would like to visit Newport for 4 days in Sept, Oct. or November. What month would you recommend and why? thanks in advance.

September is one of the best months, but still busy on the weekends, especially during the boat show. The season officially ends Oct 12, and there often can be Indian Summer and fall in general in New England can't be beat. The leaves stick around through the first week of Nov, of course not if there is a hurricane...my wedding was rained out last Oct so I know:-/.

Just want to note Newport doesn't shut down or anything after Oct 12, there is plenty of action on a nice weekend right through the New Year.

I agree with Justine. I just want to add that if you want to get out on the water, either a harbor tour, sunset cruise or just riding the harbor shuttle, you'd want to come before Oct 12. The trade-off is that after that weekend rates go down and so do the number of people. I find the "crowds" of September to be worth braving for the warm days and cool nights. But if you want foliage, wait until the third or fourth week of October.

We are driving from Philly to Newport in late September for 3 nights, staying at the Hotel Viking. Are there great restaurants to visit, maybe a place favored by locals?

Also besides the Cliff Walk are there a few cant't miss things to do?

Also are there other fun areas to visit within a few hours of Newport for a few days?

Thanks.

Newport exceeds expectations, so much to see and do in the area. You could go to Providence for the evening, maybe catch a Waterfire. No need to drive very far.
