You've done the Cliff Walk, you've seen the mansions aka "Summer Cottages." You may have even taken a harbor tour. But here's a list of ways to experience Newport RI like a tycoon, a rum smuggler, or America's Cup crew in ways you never could before.
How's this for a romantic travel fantasy: A weekend at the Cabot Cove cottages in Kennebunkport, Maine. You stay in a private cottage, and breakfast arrives at your door each morning. For the rest of the day, you hike to lighthouses, swim, sail, go whale-watching, drink wine in Adirondack chairs, and eat lobster for dinner.
