Most visitors who come to the City-by-the-Sea know about Newport’s famed Cliff Walk prior to their arrival. For many, a walk on the Cliff Walk was one of the reasons and highlights for their visit. Fewer visitors are aware of the Newport Harbor Walk, which is too bad because this is a fine trail, although it has a much different character than Newport’s more famous oceanfront path. Unique in its own right, the Harbor Walk is an urban trail and has as much to offer the intrepid walker as the Cliff Walk. Five miles / eight kilometers in length, the trail winds along the edge of Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay. It begins in the historic Point neighborhood, then passes through the main harbor area, which in summer is a very popular place that attracts a multitude of visitors, both tourists and local people alike, who come to relax by the waterfront and get something to eat or drink and to watch people go by, or to see all the boats and yachts in the harbor, many of which come to Newport from around the world. It’s a thoroughly enjoyable trail, whether you travel just a portion of it or walk the entire length.
