We enjoyed touring Fort Adams on the off season but were frustrated by the lack of restroom facilities. At least a port-a-potty would be greatly appreciated since this area of Newport has no restaurants or gas stations.

Very large fort - attended a rehearsal dinner for a family member's wedding here - great event and a very cool place! Don't know if I would visit had I not been attending the dinner, but the view of the water was amazing from the grounds!

The Fort is a great place for walks year round with beautiful ocean views from everywhere. Check out a tour of the Fort if you are a history buff or catch one of the many summer events from the Jazz and Folk festivals in early August through through the fall with the Irish Festival in September or one of the antique car shows. And check out the Museum of Yachting ther and open in the spring summer and fall.

This is the place the Newport Jazz Festival is held at every year. It's an old park with old war bunkers and other historical points. Good for a day out in the fresh air.
