Newport Warnings and Dangers: 11 reviews and 23 photos
Our most recent visit was during the first weekend in March 2015. Of course there was already tons of snow on the ground from this terrible winter we are having and then we got another storm while we were in Newport.
The sidewalks in most places are poorly shoveled an have dangeous ice chunks as well. Even on Bellvue Avenue and many of the popular walking streets had dangerous conditions. I had my wife hold onto me tightly to keep here from taking a fall.
We stayed over during the Sunday snow storm and boy was it interesting. The wind and snow made the visibility terrible even for walking so we decided to stay in for dinner and eat at the Hyatt. It was amazing to see how bad the plowing is in this area the next day;it made for an interesting drive out of Newport.
Spots along the Cliff Walk can be dangerous with steep steps such as the 40 steps, uneven pavement and sloping hills. Wear good walking shoes and watch where you step.
The Newport Police Don't Mess Around....
Be careful to feed the parking meter and watch where you park. Newport Police are very stringent in enforcing the speed limit and parking rules. We saw many a person getting ticketed for traffic violations and parking violations. We even witnessed a man's car get towed because he was parked in a tow away zone.
The sidewalks here are horrible They should bulldoze them all and start new. Most streets have bushes pushing into the small sidewalk area forcing you out onto the street. The surface of the sidewalks are also quite up and down and badly broken up. So do watch every step you take over here.
I don't ever want to leave. There is something about this town I just like. Never have been able to willingly leave. The Mansions. The history. The water. My kind of beach. Cold and foggy.
Newport keeps me coming back.
