Fort Adams Road, Newport, RI, United States, 2840
Established in the early 19th Century, Fort Adams sits at the harbor of Newport Bay. At the time of its construction, it was the largest of its kind in the United States, envisioned by the U.S. Navy as one of the key features of the defenses set up to safeguard the Narragansett Bay Area. Previously a US Navy and US Army base, the site was later acquired by the government in 1965 and revamped to be used as a state park. The aerial view of the park reveals a stone-enclosed fortress with a prominent bulwark facing the Narragansett Bay. Providing stunning views of the bay, the park now functions as a recreational spot offering facilities for family outings, picnics and various water sports. The highly-acclaimed Newport Jazz and Newport Folk Festivals are held here each year, and have featured performances by the likes of Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone.
