From morning yoga sessions to peaceful spa treatments, we have curated the perfect 24-hour itinerary for you to indulge in some much-needed self-care.

When you visit Newport for one of my acupuncture or facial rejuvenating treatments, take the opportunity to indulge in local activities that not only complement your therapy but also prolong its benefits.

Here’s your guide to Self-care & relaxation in Newport, Rhode Island:

  1. Jog Along the Cliffwalk: Kickstart your day with an invigorating jog along the Cliffwalk. This paved path, set against the backdrop of majestic Gilded Age mansions and the vast ocean, is perfect for boosting your circulation. Learn more at Cliffwalk.
  2. Stroll on Sachuest Beach: Prefer a gentler activity? Walk along Sachuest Beach, also known as 2nd Beach. As the sun sets, watch it illuminate St. George’s chapel on the hill and enjoy the sight of surfers riding the waves. A truly picturesque scene. More details here.
  3. Tea and breakfast at The Nitro Bar: While the coffee is excellent, they have a fantastic selection of Mem teas and some healthy, tasty food options. Check out their two Newport locations at The Nitro Bar
