Blues travelers can rejoice now that the Newport Jazz Festival (one of our nine favorite summer festivals) has announced several hotel packages to make it easier and more affordable to stay and hear the artists play along the waterfront in Fort Adams State Park. Whether you book a package at Newport Harbor Hotel & Marina, Hotel Viking, or Newport Marriott, don’t wait to plan your trip for July 31-August 2 because the deals—and tickets to see the likes of Hiromi, Chris Botti, Jamie Cullum, Cassandra Wilson, and the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra—are selling out fast.
