what travelers are saying:

I can't thank you enough for the Newport Guide. It was a great time. We loved Diego's, Bar Cino, Belle's, Dahlia Shed, and Sweet Berry Farm. Sachuest Point sunset walks were a definite gem. So sad to be on the way home—already looking at house prices, haha.

I'm a new Rhode Island resident, and when Jess gives me a recommendation, I'm there! I brought a friend to The Mooring for her birthday lunch. Seafood towers and champagne, marina views and charming decor made for the perfect afternoon.

- Rachel

Jess has wonderful taste and I love how she prioritizes supporting the small businesses that make Newport so special. Her guide was so helpful in maximizing the few days we spent in Newport. I would absolutely recommend The Newport Guide.

Hi, I’m Jess Kirby!

Welcome to Newport! I was born and raised on Aquidneck Island, and my family has lived here for generations. It's a truly special place.

There’s so much to love: beautiful snowy walks in winter, incredible days on the water come summer and stunning foliage in the fall. This community is full of great people, stunning landscapes, rich history and charm. I hope you love our beautiful, peaceful island as much as we do.
