Newport Harbor and Fort Adams Park on $20 a day
This is part of an 18 week, 7,532 mile, Vanabode road trip detailed in the
book from Amazon
Do not miss the astonishing Newport Harbor and Fort Adams Park. This place is something special. Our pictures DO NOT even come close to showing what this huge place looks and feels like! Visit if you can!
Above: Hundreds of watercraft are sailing and motoring in every direction in perfect view from the elevated points of this spectacular peninsula.
Three masted tall ships, wooden schooners, giant steel navy vessels, hardy kayaks, power boats, sleek yachts, homemade sailboats, and restored mega yachts all race back and forth through the choppy dangerous seas right in front of us.
Above: Students aboard cute little boats with tiny little beach towel sized sails fly across the troubled waters like angry ants on a hot afternoon. On a day like this, I could easily sit here for eight hours and not be bored for a minute.
Above: The panoramic views are nearly indescribable. For six dollars we can park here overnight, but no RV’s are allowed (another example of how our rig trumps more expensive travel vehicles)
Above: Kelly wheels us to Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge, a big green area on Google maps spread out over many miles. This refuge is just a half-mile from the beach where they charge twenty dollars a day to park.
Above: We park for free at the welcome center and entertain ourselves with free exhibits, films, and the interesting wildlife and geography information.
