A place very near and dear to all those who love Newport.

The folks at Yahoo Travel took it upon themselves to come up with a list of the coolest spot in each of the fifty states. Now, given some of the “coolest” spots in other states one might question their methodology. For example:

Maine The world’s largest rotating globe can be found in an appropriate place: the headquarters of famed mapmakers DeLorme in Yarmouth. It even has a cool name: Eartha.

While we may be cartography enthusiasts ourselves, we’ll be the first to admit that “map making” and “cool” are generally understood to be mutually exclusive.

Questionable methodology aside, we do have to admit that their choice for Rhode Island’s coolest spot passes muster.


Instead of the Big Blue Bug or Scarborough Beach, Newport’s Cliff Walk took the title as Rhode Island’s coolest spot. This is, of course, hardly the first time that Newport’s most famous place to take a stroll has received such an accolade, but it’s nice to see that it’s still got its touch.
