Stay  &  Play  for  the  Day

It’s no secret that vacations are awesome. But between work, family, and social events, it can be difficult to find the time to sneak away—even for just a weekend. This is why Newport Dunes is glad to offer the latest travel trend, daycations.

The concept is pretty simple. Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort gives the public the chance to utilize certain resort amenities without reserving a cottage or RV site for the night. You can call it a sneak peek at what staying at the resort is like as a guest.
