Bowen’s Wharf Now Partnering with Ft. Adams
Bowen’s Wharf is excited to announce we are partnering with Fort Adams as part of the many heritage tours offered through our newly renovated Pilot House. Fort Adams is home to festivals and events all summer long. This past weekend they hosted The 5th Annual Water Brothers Surf Fest, founded by Newport local and legend Sid Abbruzzi. Also worth mentioning was a musical appearance by We Own Land, led on vocals by Bowen’s Wharf’s operations and dock manager, Craig Ferris. Fort Adams was also a recent stop over for the authentic American Revolution replica tallship L’Hermione, where she enjoyed a few days before sailing for Boston.
Newport’s history and the development of American seacoast defenses is the basis for the traditional hour long guided tour that takes you from the top of the Fort walls to the depths of the underground listening tunnels. So feel free to drive downtown and park with us at Bowen’s Wharf or at the Discover Newport visitors center. Stop at our Pilot House and purchase not only tickets for tours but also ferry tickets across Newport harbor to drop you off right at Fort Adams. It doesn’t get easier or more enjoyable than that!
