Fall In Love With Newport (Again!)
Oct 16, 2018
Ahhh, autumn. We love you. After the fluctuating temperature shifts and brutal humidity of this past summer, we love you even more. The slight chill in the air means it’s time to break out our scarves, grab out favorite beverage (looking at you, psl), and soak in the best season with long walks, pumpkin patches, and comfort food. While NYC has a bevy of fall activities, if you’re not in the mood to head into Manhattan, why not hang out in the neighborhood? Newport has a huge array of activities perfect to help you fall in love with Newport all over again.
Newport’s annual Pumpkin Festival is a sweet celebration of fall, complete with pumpkin decorating, a live magic show, tons of activities, and of course, candy. Stop by Newport Green Park on Saturday the 20th from 11am – 1pm for the festivities!
- Stroll along the esplanade and enjoy watching the leaves turn. It’s finally the prime time of year to sit on the scenic wooden benches on the river and enjoy a sunset. Grab a hot tea to go and a loved one for a peaceful and relaxing evening.
- Not into the great outdoors? Check out the planetarium show at the incomparable Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium, part of the Liberty Science Center. As the largest planetarium in the Western Hemisphere, you’re guaranteed to enjoy a jaw-dropping show.
- Sip on something utterly original. Bwe Kafe’s unique black sesame latte is back for the fall. This limited-time beverage is simply delicious, balancing full-bodied flavor with a rich, creamy finish. We heartily recommend trying it with the oat milk. You’re welcome.
- One of the great joys of autumn is breaking out the thick-weave sweaters, snuggly scarves, and questionable hats. Prepare for the season and enjoy some retail therapy at the Newport Centre Mall. Whether you’re budget-minded or a carefree spender, you’re going to find something you can’t wait to wear.
