Summer is in full swing and what better way to spend all or part of your weekend than in Newport Rhode Island?  The seaside city was home to the earliest English settlers to America in 1636 and boasts more colonial buildings than any other city in the United States.  Visit the Bellevue Avenue Historic District to see the Newport Mansions - or "summer cottages" as they were sometimes called.  Built by some of the richest families in America at the time and the most important architects, the mansions have been fully restored, including their furnishings, thanks to the efforts of the Newport County Preservation Society and the generosity of the families who originally owned them.  The busy harbor, once a leading port for the export of rum, fish, furniture and silver during the Colonial period, is a great place to eat, shop and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings.  Newport is known too as a Yachting Capital and The United States Navy has called Newport home since the 1860's. Any time is a good time to visit Newport but if you happen to be there this weekend, don't miss the Newport Antiques Show...Meg
