Walking Tour: Holiday Lantern Tours
December 4 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm$20
The Newport Historical Society’s Holiday Lantern Tour, an annual tradition for families across the Ocean State, is the perfect activity to get into the holiday spirit.
Presented by the NHS’s tour program, Newport History Tours, the Holiday Lantern Tour features the history of early American holiday traditions and explores how Newporters did—or didn’t—celebrate the holidays. This walking tour is one of the few occasions when visitors can explore Newport’s early history at dusk with an expert tour guide.
Newport History Tours is known for presenting tours to small groups to ensure a better experience for all. The tour departs outside of the Museum of Newport History at the Brick Market, located at 127 Thames Street, and lasts approximately one hour. Tickets, which must be purchased at NewportHistoryTours.org, cost $20 per person, $15 for Newport Historical Society members and active duty military, and $8 for children ages 5-12.
