Read ahead for our top 5 ways to soak in the sun at Newport! 

Connect to Free Outdoor Wi-Fi

Did you know Newport’s outdoor spaces are equipped with free, high-speed internet? Easy for residents to connect to, our fast Wi-Fi is great for working from home while enjoying a sunny day anywhere along Newport Green. Or set up a workspace in one of our fantastic outdoor courtyards, roof decks, or lounges for the perfect combo of sunshine and productivity.


Swimming in Sunshine

Our resort-style pools are ideal spaces for soaking up some summertime fun-in-the-sun. Relax in the sunshine while taking in stunning waterfront views at The Beach’s outdoor pool and sun deck. Catch some rays while swimming in the luxurious oversized pool or lounging on the impressive elevated roof deck at The Ellipse. Or for a public and kid-friendly option head to Lafayette Pool and Aquatic Center minutes away from Newport.


Sun-Soaked Roof Decks

Newport’s impressive roof decks are the ideal spot for grabbing that summery sunshine. Bring some sunscreen and claim a spot on one of the many available lounge chairs. Newport’s roof decks are also ideal for a weekend afternoon barbecue with friends or watching the sunset over the Hudson while sipping a refreshing beverage.


Fun-in-the-Sun for Kids

There are tons of ways kids can enjoy the sunshine at Newport too! Spend an afternoon sliding, swinging, and climbing under the sun at one of our many playgrounds, then head straight to the splash pad to cool off. Bring a soccer ball to pass around on Newport’s sprawling lawns, and end the day with a ride on the carousel as the sun dips down over the waterfront.


Exercise with a View    

One of the best ways to soak in the sun at Newport is while getting some invigorating outdoor exercise. Start the day off right with sun salutations on one of Newport’s roof decks or your own private balcony. Challenge a neighbor to an outdoor game of tennis. Or just enjoy the sunshine while taking a jog or stroll along Newport’s gorgeous waterfront walkway.
