Newport, Rhode Island is a historic seaside town and popular summer vacation destination. The town is home to many colonial-era buildings, including the iconic Newport Mansions.
However, one thing Newport does not have is a casino.
There has been much debate in recent years about whether or not to build a casino in Newport. Some argue that a casino would be a boon to the local economy, bringing in much-needed revenue and jobs.
Others worry that a casino would only serve to tarnish Newport’s image as a family-friendly destination.
At present, there are no casinos in Newport. However, this could change in the future if the state of Rhode Island decides to legalize gambling.
Only time will tell if Newport will eventually get its own casino.
