Pulse: Weekend Getaway: Rhode Island

Why: Newport, the picture-perfect resort nestled along the Narragansett Bay, begs for long walks, afternoon shopping and candlelit suppers.

Stay: This month, the Chanler at Cliff Walk offers a culinary duet package: two nights at the postcard-pretty boutique hotel, and dinners at the Spiced Pear, the property’s Four Diamond restaurant known for its first-rate seafood and open-air veranda, and the circa-1673 White Horse Tavern, where you must have the local lobster mac-and-cheese. Package from $1,015.

Don’t miss: The breathtaking Cliff Walk, a three-and-a-half-mile path bordered by stunning seascapes and world-renowned mansions.

Travel time: Five hours by car, or grab a direct flight to Providence. Thechanler.com.
