Cardines Field dining options in the area

There is no shortage of options for fun things to do here on Aquidneck Island, especially in mid-July.

There are daily funs like a Newport Mansion tour, a sailing cruise, a Rail Explorer excursion, and an island tour on a rented motorbike. Then there are seasonal events unique to our region like watching a polo match, participating in the Hall of Fame Open Tennis Tournament, seeing a new outdoor screening of FILM or joining the fun Folk Festival in Fort Adams.

When considering the possibilities for fun evenings this summer, don’t forget to add Newport Gulls at Cardines Field to your list. For baseball fans young and old, there is no better value ($5 for adults and $1 for kids 12 and under) on the island for a magical night under the twilight skies.

There is magic within the confines of the 114-year-old Cardinals Stadium, named after Bernardo Cardenes, the first Newport citizen to die in World War I.

After you choose your general admission seat in the wooden stands that surround the diamonds, you look out over the field where ghosts of former Cardines Field players like Satchell Paige, Larry Doby, Yogi Berra, Phil Rizzuto and Bob Feller still roam.
