Christmas in Newport, RI

♫ Listening now…

 

It’s been a few days, guys! I was on vacation! heart emoji smiley

I surprised my boyfriend for our 6 year anniversary- he didn’t know where we were going most of the way. (Of course he tried to guess the whole way, but I didn’t tell him!) We stayed at The Hotel Viking, which was beautiful.

I have always wanted to go to Newport, Rhode Island- my mom and her sister used to go with friends for the summer and raved about it. Mom says it was her escape. It felt like she was entering a different place altogether. We pull out her harbor bell Christmas ornament from the little town every year while decorating the tree. So of course I had to visit!

These seagulls were in love everyone- they were making out on the beach!

We visited the corner cafe for brunch before we left to go on the cliff walk- such a cute little atmosphere and amazing food!

And the ice cream! Anytime of the year, of course. We visited Kilwins-it was amazing. Kilwins website. They have chocolates, too!

The cafe we went to had this cute art hanging up, so I researched the artist. Her name is Johanna Kriesel. When I saw it I recognized the art- I knew I had seen it before, but didn’t know who it was!

  1. I lived in Newport for a short while and used to walk the cliff walk in the early morning every day. It was so magical – those huge historical houses on one side and the raging sea on the other. I would have loved to see it back in the day, and it would be awesome to visit at Christmas time.

  2. A couple years ago I did Christmas in Newport and made sure to tour the mansions. It was so spectacular to see all those glorious places decked out for the holiday. The tours were specialized for that season too.
