After winter ended, the international students wanted to start visiting places that are popular here in America. So my friends and I decided to go to Newport for one day, as it is just a 90 minute drive from Boston by car. We wanted to visit Newport because people from Boston told us that Bostonians tend to go there during the summer because of its beaches and as a break from the cold Boston weather.
The trip started early on Saturday morning. We all met at the Enterprise that is in front of BU and rented two cars. Initially we were planning to get small ones, but the nice people at Enterprise gave us an upgrade. For only $10.00 more we got a Dodge Charger and a Chevrolet Malibu. Our smartphones became our GPS and we went all the way down to the beautiful city of Newport. We arrived early and we left the cars in a parking lot. People told us that the best way to visit Newport was walking and we did listen to them. Besides, we were lucky it was a very sunny day.
We decided to take a walk all along the coast of Newport, arrived at the harbor, and then went backed to a restaurant to get lunch. We were keen on trying lobster, but we decided to wait until dinner to try the local shellfish. I ordered a lobster roll and after that the local fish and chips. Even though I wanted lobster, I couldn’t complain.
The group finish eating and after that we continued walking throughout the coast for a couple hours, we were also looking for someone who could tell us which was the restaurant with the best steamed lobster in Newport. We found some local people who told us that Anthony´s was our spot
We arrived to the restaurant and realized that it was a place where local people went to have dinner. Prices were reasonable and finally, we could order lobster! I was very hungry so I ordered a lobster and a Norwegian salmon fillet. I couldn’t be more surprised. The taste of the food was wonderful. As if we hadn’t had enough food for the day we went to get some ice cream and cookies at a local bakery-ice cream store near the harbor. The ice cream was exceptionally delicious and the cookies very crunchy. That day we ate more food than any other day since we'd been in Boston as exchange students.
