Our nephew Zach Cohen is marrying Kelley Martin on the Island of Nantucket Friday the 13th of September. We decided to extend the family trip into a September Wedding Anniversary (34 years) vacation. We have not really spent any time in the New England area and decided to begin with a stop in Newport, Rhode Island on the way up and …
Today I was taken to Yawgoo Valley by my cousin Bronwyn her husband Rick and their two kids Cein and Eamon. Oh what fun! We went 'tubing' which involves getting into a blow up donut shaped device and being pushed down a hill at incredible (and sometimes frightening) speeds. At the bottom of the hill there was a tow rope that you could attach your tube to be pulled up, which was ...
... my bus! Yep, the 12:55PM to Providence was the last bus to leave New York, on it holding many disgruntled passengers. It took a lovely 6 hours to travel what normally is a 3-4 hour journey by bus. Too bad I had too much luggage for the train! I can't say it was all bad though, I got to see some little (and not so little) picturesque towns that looked like they were just pulled out from a movie set. Not the mention ...
... 28 short days. 28 days until the day I've been only dreaming of since I started looking at colleges when I was 15 years old. It's becoming real. I'm realizing now that although I thought I was independent and alone at college here in the USA, I really wasn't. I was completely reliant on my parents for most of my bills, I called my mom every single day, I had to walk into the dining hall to get food, I didn't even have to wash my own dishes, my bathroom in my suite was ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHarborside Inn Newport
We really enjoyed our stay at the Harborside Inn. The room included a queen bed downstairs with a living room suite and small refrigerator. The upstairs loft had a king size bed and is where we chose to sleep. The view from the first level small porch overlooking the parking lot towards the water was great. The headroom in the upstairs loft was a bit tricky near the window and a bit difficult to walk to. But the view was fantastic. A very comfortable room albeit the bathroom was a bit "tight".
The dining area was really fantastic with wonderful views of the marina and waters beyond. The breakfast was above average including ham, hardboiled eggs and delicious pastries. Just watch out for stale cereal stored in large containers - they probably should use individual packages for this high moisture environment. Also, keeping the coffee urns full seemed to be a challenge. The free parking was a plus for this perfect location where you could walk to just about any place you would want to see downtown and at Bannisters Warf.
The staff were friendly and helpful. But perhaps not very engaging. Their response to inquiries about dining and sights was to give us the local walking map and tell us that there were lots of great places to eat. Luckily, there was free WiFi and we just searched the online reviews to help make our agenda.
