Daffy’s in Newport

Last week has finally started to feel like spring! The sun was shining and it was the perfect time for a girls trip to Newport.

Newport has always been one of my favorite places to visit! There are so many fun bars and shops to check out. The history of the town is incredible, if it is your first time going I highly recommend doing the Newport Mansion tours. Buy the 5 mansion ticket, if you don’t make it to five you can save the ticket and use it again next time. If you’re only going to see one, see The Breakers, it is incredible! I love the history of Newport, it gives you a sense of nostalgia for a place and time you’ve never been.

Last weekend I went down to Newport with my friend Jen. It was Daffodil weekend in Newport, Nantucket’s Daffy festival is this coming weekend. Newport is a quick one hour ride from Boston, maybe a little more if you hit traffic. We did a bunch of fun things but my favorite was seeing all the daffodils!

We hit the Cliff Walk which was lined with tons of daffodils. I remember growing up my elementary school would host a daffodil fundraiser every spring. I loved getting the daffodils in the class room, and bringing them home and putting them in water. Going to the Daffy weekends throughout New England makes me feel like a kid again. Not to sound old but it just reminds me of a simpler time, life is so crazy now a days, between school, work, relationships, technology. I feel like there is always something to be done. When I was little you got home from school hopped on your bike and road around the neighborhood until supper time. Anyone else ever feel that way?

Before we headed home we ended the day with Del’s Frozen Lemonade, you can’t leave Rhode Island without one! If you’re heading to Newport soon be sure to check out my weekend guide to Newport!

  1. Gorgeous pictures of you among the daffodils and, even though I’m much older than you, I agree wholeheartedly with how much simpler life was when we were kids. I think that’s why I now enjoy riding my bike so much.


  2. What a wonderful blog. Since childhood I’ve wanted to live in New England so traveled there many times. York Harbor, Maine is a favorite haunt, but I’ve been all over. Never made it into Boston, though I love the North Shore. Think I’d have to fly in and take public transportation from what I hear of traffic, but believe I would love it there. In the Midwest, sensational yet simple living in touch with nature and literature isn’t appreciated to the same extent. I enjoy blogging about pets, nature, culture, and generally “vintage values for positive living in today’s times. Following your blog to keep up with Northeastern happenings. (and I tune in to WBZ when my radio receives it after midnight). Best wishes.
