A weekend in Newport with Gurneys

Earlier this month I took a press trip to Gurneys Newport with some friends to explore the new property and the surrounding area of Newport! The trip was super last minute, but when they said we would be taking a seaplane from NYC to Newport, I knew I had to make it work!! We took off from the East River in NYC and I'm not going to lie, it was a bit nerve wracking (the water was too choppy on our first take off attempt) but once we were in the air, it was magical! The plane fit only 10 people so it felt like we were on our way to some remote island in the middle of nowhere. Once we got there (only took 45 minutes by plane) we took a boat tour and then arrived at the Hotel. Here are some of my favorite moments from the trip!
