Newport Bachelorette Weekend # 1 
Sip and Sailing Fun!
Drive to Newport bright and early on a Saturday morning.  Check-in to an affordable (they do exist and 12 Meter Charters will help you find one!) hotel/motel option on the outskirts of Newport.  
Next, your driver(12 Meter Charters can help you arrange your transportation for the day) will pick you up at your hotel for a day vineyard tours and wine tasting! First stop is Sakonnet Vineyards, a great winery about twenty minutes from Newport in beautiful Little Compton.  Next second stop is Greenvale Vineyards, about fifteen minutes from downtown Newport.  Stop and have a picnic with wine and cheese on their beautiful lawn – some days there is even live Jazz music playing.  Last stop, is the Newport Vineyards and Winery, which has a wonderful, newly renovated, patio and a gorgeous view. 

These are just three vineyards out of the many in RI surrounding Newport. These tours and tastings are a great way to explore Rhode Island and the vineyard staff will surely be excited celebrate the bride-to-be!

After freshening up at your accommodation, take a taxi or guest shuttle to downtown Newport.  Enjoy a late afternoon or sunset sail with 12 Meter Charters!  Join one of our Daily Harbor Tours or arrange a Private Charter.  Aboard our beautiful 65 foot sailing yachts you will see the sights of Newport from the water.  Sit back and enjoy the sights or participate in the sailing – the bride-to-be can even take a turn at the wheel(sailor’s cap is optional).  Bring your own food, beer, wine and champagne (for the celebration) aboard.  Our captain and crew stand ready to serve you and help continue the celebration of the bachelorette!

Finish the day with music, drinks and dancing at one of the indoor or outdoor hot spots in downtown Newport.  The nightlife on Bowen’s Wharf, Bannister’s Wharf and Thames Street will not disappoint!   
Spend Sunday morning at one of Newport’s wonderful beaches or walking on the Cliff Walk, and then made the trek back to reality.  What a great weekend!
