Newport Day Trip

July 2, 2019 @ 8:45 am - 4:00 pm

Join us on Tuesday, July 2, 2019 as we ride the rails, enjoy lunch, and explore downtown Newport on our spring recreational outing.

Our day starts at 8:45AM as board a deluxe motor coach at INSIGHT for the quick ride to Portsmouth where we will prepare to ride the rails with the Rail Explorers, which will provide you with a unique opportunity to help pedal a two or four person car down a six mile stretch of train tracks. Along the way we will pass the topiary gardens, Carnegie Abbey, and the Mount Hope Bridge.

After our journey we will head to downtown Newport where we will enjoy lunch at the Mooring Restaurant followed by some time for everyone to browse the shops or relax by the sea before we head back to INSIGHT, arriving at around 4PM.

There is a limit of 28 people for this trip. The cost for people who are blind or visually impaired is $40. Sighted guest tickets are $80 and are limited to one per client. We are accepting $15 deposits to hold your seat(s) with the balance due no later than May 23, 2019. Full refunds will be provided for cancellations made 14 or more days before the trip.

Please note that this trip is rain or shine.

Please note that this trip does include a moderate amount of physical activity, including helping to pedal the car down the track and walking in downtown Newport.
