WHY YOU’LL LOVE ITSmall by “city” standards, Newport, Vermont is big on personality with a generous, kind touch. While you’ll be blown away by the natural beauty that surrounds Newport – from rich mountain views to stunning sunsets on the lake, you’ll be even more taken with the folks that call Newport home. From shopkeepers to restaurant and cafe owners just about everyone you meet will go out of their way to make your stay in Newport special. And if you take the time, you’ll find lots of interesting a colorful stories to share about how they ended up in Newport and, more importantly, why they stayed.

And small doesn’t mean lacking – the city and surrounding offers golf, hiking, biking, and of course, access to the “beautiful waters” of Lake Memphremagog where you can fish, swim, water ski, and kayak in the summer or go snowmobiling, ice fishing and x-country skiing in the winter.

Founded, officially, in 1793, the city of Newport, Vermont (incorporated as a city in 1918) sits on the east shore of Lake Memphremagog – a 27-mile long lake that straddles the US and Canadian border. The city has a long and colorful history informed by it’s unique location on the lake and early introduction of the railway. Today the city of Newport is a charming tourist town including specialty shops, boutiques, cafes and restraurants, is home to thriving local businesses, and is surrounded by some of the most beautiful farms in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont.

The Northeast Kingdom of Vermont is one of the very first geotourism areas in the world specially designated by National Geographic. Once you head over Sheffield Heights on Route 91 and head down into Barton, Brownington, Derby, Jay and Newport – a place where the rivers flow north – you are headed into a special place. It is what Vermont was 30 years ago: a land of fields and working farms, timberland, mountains, meandering streams and some of the most beautiful and cleanest lakes in North America.

One of the most quietly beautiful places in the world!
