About Newport Life Magazine

Newport Life Magazine is a lifestyle magazine dedicated to covering Greater Newport County. From Aquidneck Island and Conanicut Island, to Tiverton, Little Compton, Bristol and Warren, Newport Life aims to capture and showcase all that makes these communities unique, from their people and places, restaurants and museums, seasonal happenings and so much more.  

The magazine was first printed in 1993, and relaunched in summer 2022, and is designed to linger on a coffee table or be passed from friend to friend. It prints six times a year, bi-monthly, with a weekly e-newsletter distributed every Friday morning.
