Attractions near the Viking
Sailing the seas
Whether you’re an experienced sailor or simply want to sail into the sunset on a relaxed cruiser, Newport is the place to do it. Enjoy a slice of history on the Rum Runner II, originally built in 1929 for mobsters to elude the coast guard while smuggling liquor. As you cruise past elegant homes once owned by sea smugglers, you can learn about the history of the boat and its intriguing role in the underground alcohol trade.
You can also sail aboard one of 12 classic yachts, which have each raced in the world-famous America’s Cup – three of them taking out the coveted title. Step on board one of these 20-metre beauties and spend an afternoon living like the rich and famous, or take part in a three-hour sailing race to test your skills.
A fearsome fort
A short boat ride across the Newport Harbour from the hotel is the largest coastal fortification in the country. Operational between 1824 and 1950, Fort Adams was a busy military base where many of the USA’s soldiers trained and worked.
Today, guided tours are available to teach you about the history of the fort, while you explore the extensive underground tunnel system, visit the old operations areas and see where the soldiers lived. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of the harbour and city skyline from a unique vantage point.
