See also

Newport, Rhode Island is home to a number of great annual Summer Events, one of which, the Newport Flower Show will be coming up in June, from June 27 to 29, 2014; which could be combined with a luxury yacht charter out of Newport Harbor for a taste of that which makes Newport famous. The Newport Flower Show, hosted by the Newport Preservation Society, is held at the Gilded Age “Summer Cottage” of Rosecliff. Combining a visit to the Newport Flower Show with a luxury yacht charter, offers a slice of the world of the Newport Gilded Age along with the strong Gilded Age interest in yachting. The Newport “Summer Cottages” of the Gilded Age, were built in Newport to not only take advantage of the island cooling summer thermal winds for comfort before air conditioning, but also to take advantage of the summer thermal winds, which offered great sailing on the fabulous luxury sailing yachts owned by the Gilded Age wealthy such as the “Henrietta” owned by James Gordon Bennet, Jr. and “Corsair” owned by J.P. Only Newport can offer this opportunity of blending Newport’s history of the Gilded Age and yachting, with a luxury crewed yacht charter out of Newport Harbor and a visit to a Gilded Age “Summer Cottage”, Rosecliff, to enjoy the Newport Flower Show.

The Newport Flower Show is a 3 day event starting with the Opening Night Party at Rosecliff, which is a pre-purchase ticket event (tickets available on line), and features cocktails, a dinner buffet, a first glimpse at this year’s fabulous flower arrangements, and a first chance opportunity to purchase at the Oceanside Marketplace and Gardener’s Marketplace. On Saturday and Sunday, view the flower arrangements, see the Event Winners, and browse the Oceanside Marketplace and Gardener’s Marketplace while enjoying the ambiance of the Gilded Age at Rosecliff. Meet experts in the field, at the ticket afternoon Tea on Saturday, with Michael Devine, amongst other special guests, and bring your copy of Devine’s book, An Invitation to the Garden, published in April 2014 prior to the Tea to be signed by the Author.

Plan to visit for a day or enjoy the full Newport Flower Show event at Rosecliff, a Newport Gilded Age “Summer Cottage” before, after or during a luxury crewed yacht charter out of Newport Harbor.
