Take the guided tour of Ft Adams if you enjoy naval history. Never used in war, this fort was an engineering marvel. The surrounding park is a great place to walk.

Good place to drive to or bike to if I’m Newport. Didn’t tour the fort though it’s a nice spot to view the boats and also to get a full picture of the Newport Bridge. Will be back to tour the fort itself next time....More

Fascinating fortress hovers over the harbor mouth. Great entry into the harbor on a cruise ship with a grand view of the harbor. Fort is an easy addition to the cliff walk and exploration of the Breakers and the other mansions.
