Christmas in Newport, R.I. offers so many memorable holiday scenes, thus proving that this famous New England destination is truly special year-round. From simple to elaborate, here are five such places sure to get you in the holiday spirit...

Newport Harbor Lighthouse

This famous lighthouse at Goat Island with views of the Pell Bridge in the distance could stand on its own as a beautiful Newport attraction but a few Christmas designs make it that much nicer.

Easton's Beach

Christmas tree at Easton's Beach in Newport, R.I.

The Christmas tree at Easton's Beach is rather diminutive, standing at about three ft. tall but its presence juxtaposed with the beach makes it stand out beautifully.
Dress up warmly, though, the chill in the air can be quite bracing! The tree is located near the main visitor's building.

Marble House

Christmas at the Marble House mansion, Newport, R.I.

What's better than a tour of a Newport mansion? A tour of a Newport mansion during the Christmas season! The stunningly beautiful Marble House reveals several Christmas trees within its large spaces. This Christmas tree by a grand marble staircase stands as one of the more impressive parts of the tour.

Annie's on Bellevue

Lunch and breakfast at Annie's on Bellevue Ave. never disappoints. Neither will the Christmas designs on the ceiling. What an incredible sight! It's hard to imagine how many hours went into creating this spectacular, welcoming design.

Salve Regina University

Lights at Orchre Court, Salve Regina University in Newport, R.I.

The Christmas lights on mature trees leading to Salve Regina University's Ochre Court Building (a spectacular mansion-style building) never fail to amaze. So grand, so brilliant, so Christmas! It's like approaching a sparkling castle during the Christmas season in a fairy tale.
