NEWPORT, R.I. -- It may be famous for the Vanderbilts and other millionaires, but Newport offers more than pretty mansions and beaches. Located 30 miles southeast of Providence, this quaint seaside town now rivals the state capital in shopping and dining -- even in the off-season.After Labor Day, swimmers and other sports enthusiasts are still able to shop at Island Windsurfing, located at 86 Aquidneck Avenue near First Beach, for swimsuit activewear and athletic gear.The waterfront Bowen's Wharf is a cobblestone shopping area where everything from swimwear to sea fare is easily found. Sweatshirts, shorts, eveningwear and other apparel are available at Marblehead Handprints, the Sail Loft, Laura Ashley and other specialty shops on the wharf. Menus at The Clark Cooke House, the Wharf Deli and Pub and the Black Pearl offer shrimp, swordfish, clam chowder and other New England staples. The White Horse Tavern, founded in 1673, is located at the corner of Marlborough and Farewell Streets and is the oldest tavern in the country and a short walk from Bowen's Wharf.For those who'd rather sightsee, Bellevue Avenue is home to the International Tennis Hall of Fame; the Newport Art Museum, and The Breakers, Rosecliff and several other mansions.
