Romantic Getaways in Newport

If you are looking for romantic places to eat in Newport, there are several that won't disappoint.  For guests looking for a formal dining experience, the Bouchard Inn & Restaurant should be on the list.  

The White Horse Tavern, although a pub, is another romantic spot. First built in the 17th century, the White Horse Tavern was originally a brewery to supply the town with craft beer.  Years later, Philip Geraerdy became the first private owner of the White Horse Tavern, renaming it after renovations in 1641 as the Wooden Horse Tavern.  The local residents found the new name distasteful because of the Wooden Horse's former name recognition as a torture device utilized during the American colonial period and medieval times.  Because of this, Geraerdy changed the name back to the White Horse Tavern, which etched its name in history. The current building dates back to the 19th century and is an example of the mercantile era of New York.   This historic building has also been home to commision merchants and cotton dealers.

WaterFire offers a romantic setting as a sculpture created by the artist Barnaby Evans.  The sculpture installation spans three rivers throughout the downtown Providence.   The impressive artwork displays over 80 sparkling bonfires that flicker light on the arched bridges and leave a pleasant aroma of wood smoke in the air.  WaterFire has been labeled the crown jewel of Providence, and continues to gain popularity year after year.  The first fire was created in 1994 and was created for a celebration of the tenth anniversary of First Night Providence.
