Newport, RI – Marina of the Month
June 14, 2011
Newport, Rhode Island, City-by-the-Sea, as expected, has many fabulous marinas. One of the perks of being a waterfront business in Newport is that we are lucky enough to dock our America’s Cup 12 Meter Yachts at them all! We thought we would give you a glimpse of some of the view and amenities at these great marinas. Whether you are visiting Newport with or without a boat these Newport marinas offer more than just dockage! This month let’s check out Bannister’s Wharf…
Bannister’s Wharf was the host to America’s Cup boats while the Cup racing was held in Newport and is the center of downtown Newport. In addition to a full service marina, Bannister’s Wharf offers some of the best shopping, dining and accommodations Newport has to offer.
Enjoy dining at famous Newport spots including the Clarke Cooke House which is also the home of our 12 Meter Yacht Club. Enjoy shopping including the Black Dog, the Newport Mansion Store and much more. Stay at the Bannister’s Wharf guest house rooms – the view is unparalleled! And finish your visit to Bannister’s Wharf with our favorite part of the Wharf…take in the view of Newport Harbor from one of their relaxing Adirondack chairs with an ice cream or a cup of coffee – it is paradise.
