Could be a great attraction, but very run down. Half of it looks like a building site. The self guided tour does not allow you access to areas that can be seen on the guided tour,

Fort Adams has an amazing view of Newport Harbour with the port, bridge & small islands. It's lovely to spend a warm spring afternoon watching ships go by.

The fort is very big and the history was interesting. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. I best part was the listening tubes and learning about the military strategy in the design of the fort. It was about a 90 minute tour.

The tour guide we had was really good - very knowledeable and was able to answer questions as well as give us the planned 'spiel.' If your'e a history buff, it's a must see - it's just oustide of downtown Newport, and the drive to get there is beautiful!

This is a great granite fort. Take the full guided tour and visit the listening tunnels. A great example of fortress engineering and coastal artillery. The tour came alive because of the guide, Paul. A great place to visit.
