Beacons are transmitters that can be detected by mobile devices, and more specifically, by one of the apps running on a device. When your visitor enters a defined area, they can be prompted to access a site, or can be alerted to any other messages like finding the gift shop, visitors center, or to take advantage of a discount. The beacons utilize low-powered technology and can avoid draining the battery on the mobile device.
More than a city of mansions, Newport has over three hundred pre-Revolutionary War era buildings—more than any other American city. Newport’s history is remarkable in many ways, but perhaps the most unique aspect is the fact that much of its history is still visible in an unparalleled concentration of preserved architecture. Much of Newport's history can be seen when strolling the streets -- from the tenets of religious tolerance upon which the town was founded in 1639, to the economic maritime growth of the early 18th century, and the devastating effects of the Revolutionary War, to the development of the 19th century "cottages" along Bellevue Avenue. Whether you’re visiting in person or exploring far from the City-by-the-Sea, discover Newport’s architectural tapestry with Explore Historic Newport.
