Thanksgiving 2017

Hey there - 6 adults & 2 teens coming up to Newport for Thanksgiving weekend...we've only been during the summer so we're wondering about restaurants open on Thanksgiving Day & other stuff to do over the long weekend. All suggestions & guidance are appreciated! : )

Here is a list of restaurants serving Thanksgiving Dinner from last year. I would guess that all of them would be open again this year although the Hyatt is now Gurney's

Big kickoff to Christmas that weekend. Several mansions are decorated... The Breakers, The Elms and Marblehouse. The Nutcracker will be performed at Rosecliff. There is a lantern foot tour of Newport Friday and Saturday nights. Newport is a year-round city, so other than the holiday itself you don't have to worry about restaurants closing. If it's cold enough there is an outdoor ice rink. If it's not too cold it's tradition to decorate the boats at anchor in the harbor with lights. There is a parade of boats one night, but not sure if it's that weekend. Newport that weekend will have a Dickens-like feel to it. I love it!

Newport's holiday parade of boats takes place in the harbor on Friday, November 24, 2017 starting about 6:00 PM . Yachts all decked out in holiday lights made a circle around the harbor. Great event, don't miss it. Free. Anyplace with a view of the harbor is perfect.
