Bachelorette in Newport?

Hi ladies! I came here for some insight and hoping you can help. My girls just decided that we are doing my bachelorette Labor Day weekend. I'm from western mass. When they starting throwing out idea of where to go I mentioned Newport. We want someplace within a few hours driving distance but I've been to the
Cape and the ct casinos a billion times. Several people have told me Newport is beautiful and fun. We are looking for a mixture of low key during the day but fun places to go out at night were not crazy partiers but we like to have a good time. Am I on par here thinking Newport is a good idea? If so any suggestions for restaurants, bars or accommodations ? Thanks!

Re: Bachelorette in Newport?

  • Sounds like you're pretty on par to me! However, you should look into accommodations NOW because LD weekend is probably at least 50% (realistically way more) booked, for hotels as well as B&Bs, houses, etc.


  • Also look into whether there are any festivals that weekend in Newport. If its one you are interested in, great...if not, the city will be swarming and you will be aggravated by the traffic/crowds
  • <div>We had my friend's bachelorette in Newport last year and it was great.  Had lunch and drinks at Atlantic Beach Club (right on the water) then checked into the hotel, had some drinks, and went out all night. There are a lot of bars that you can walk to.  But I would check the hotel prices and availability for that weekend-- usually they make you book 2 nights.  We stayed at the Ramada Middletown becaue they only required one night.</div><div>
