Rhode Island is the smallest state in the United States, home to just over a million people.  Along its coast is nestled Newport, a lovely seaport city offering gorgeous views, history, and culture.  The city was founded in 1639 as a haven for religious exiles, and numerous historic churches and homes date back hundreds of years.  During the Gilded Age, families like the Astors and Vanderbilts built mansions along the waterfront, many of which are now open for tours.  The Cliffwalk follows the Atlantic coastline, providing breathtaking views of both the ocean and these opulent homes.  Visitors today can also take in art galleries, fine dining, and shopping along the city's cobblestone streets and wharves.
