Charter a luxury yacht out of Newport RI at the end of June, and spend time ashore at the Newport Flower Show which usually occurs mid June every year. Organized by the Newport Preservation Society, this is a lovely show, located at Rosecliff, of Newport’s famous “Summer Cottages.”  Toast the Newport “Gilded Age,” enjoy Newport’s history of yachting, while surrounded by views of the ocean and beautiful flowers when visiting the Newport Flower Show.

The Newport Flower Show three-day event is kicked each summer usually with an Opening Night Party at Rosecliff, which is a pre-purchase ticket event (tickets available on line), featuring cocktails, a dinner buffet, a first glimpse at this year’s fabulous flower arrangements, and a first chance opportunity to purchase great items at the Oceanside Marketplace and Gardener’s Marketplace.

On Saturday and Sunday, Rosecliff is open each day to view the flower arrangements, see the arrangements of the Event Winners, and browse the Oceanside Marketplace and Gardener’s Marketplace. Take advantage of meeting experts in the field at the ticket afternoon Tea on Saturday, where a noted gardening author, amongst other special guests, are available to answer your gardening questions.

Enjoy a day or the full Newport Flower Show event, in a setting only Newport, Rhode Island can offer, at Rosecliff, a “Summer Cottage” on the sea before, after or during a luxury crewed yacht charter from Newport Harbor.
