Pequannock UNICO invites you to join us for a 4-day, 3-night trip to Newport, Rhode Island on September 16-19, 2019
Depart from Pequannock and travel to Rhode Island, stopping for rest and lunch on your own along the way. Arrive in late afternoon in the Newport area and check into your lodging for the next three nights. Dinner is on you own this evening at Applebee’s, located at your lodging.
Breakfast at your lodging, then board your bus and depart for a day in the Newport area. Start your day with a one-hour guided tour of Historic Newport. After your tour, visit the Touro Synagogue (the oldest Synagogue building still standing in the United States). Lunch is on your own in Newport, followed by an audio tour of “The Elms.” Continue this afternoon to a local vineyard for a tour, followed by wine tasting. Prepare for your evening and then depart for dinner at a local restaurant. After dinner, depart for the nearby Newport Grand Slots for some gaming fun. Return to the motel afterward for a restful night.
Breakfast at your lodging, then depart for audio tours of two of Newport’s magnificent mansions. “The Breakers” is the grandest of Newport’s summer “cottages” and a symbol of the Vanderbilt family’s social and financial preeminence in turn-of-the-century America. “Marble House” was built between 1888 and 1892 and was inspired by the Petit Trianon at Versailles. After your visits, continue to the Brick Marketplace for lunch on your own, with time to browse the shops of your choosing. The highlight of your afternoon is a one-hour cruise on Newport Harbor about the “Amazing Grace.” See Newport at its picture-perfect best as your narrator gives you close-up views of the lighthouses, America’s Cup yachts, grand estates and much more. Return to your motel later this afternoon for dinner and a relaxing evening.
After breakfast, check out and depart for home — taking with you wonderful memories of your vacation in the timeless elegance of Newport.
