Newport county encompasses some of the best of Rhode Island, and those who don't live there try to go there as often as possible. There is much history in this diversely oceanfront area. Words fail to capture the quality and quantity of churches, mills, homes, mansions, cobblestone streets, and other pieces of colonial charm this region maintains. Newport county is home to Salve Regina University, and the U.S. Naval War College. While the county is known for its academic pursuits and thriving naval companies, the area also enjoys a reputation as a summer colony where people from all over the world come to experience its rare beauty. Newport also happens to be a warm and safe community with vast resources for modern living and recreation. The area is graced with all different aspects of ocean character set against the perennial grandeur of the Gilded Age: the bustling fishing ports, the unspoiled sea shores, and even farmlands by the sea.
