Visiting from the east coast and just HAD to dip our toes in the Pacific! Waves were deceiving and we got soaked. Off-season so we almost had the beach to ourselves. Enjoyed the beauty

We were at Lido Isle for a meeting in October, the weather couldn’t have been much nicer, sunny and warm! If you are looking for just an afternoon or evening day/night out, Newport is great.
