We'd like to spend a couple of days in Newport, RI when we are in NYC but don't want to rent a car. What's the best way to Newport without a car? I've seen suggestions to use Amtrak from Penn Station to Kingston or Providence then taxi or train into Newport. Which station is the easier stop? Are taxis waiting at the train station or do we need to call ahead and arrange? Or is the bus the best option.
While we are price sensitive, ease is important as well.
Thanks in advance for your help!
