The Newport Family Adventure package
Where: 1 Bellevue Avenue, Newport, Rhode Island
When: Available through 2017
How much: Starting at $159 per night on weekdays and $239 per night on weekends

School vacation is in full swing, and with recent bouts of unseasonably warm weather, a little time off calls for a pre-summertime family escape to the ocean. If kicking back beside the mansions of Newport, Rhode Island wasn’t the kid-friendly getaway you had in mind, think again.

The Newport Family Adventure special at the Hotel Viking takes some of the best things about childhood—arcades, snacks, and toys—and rolls them into a neat package. Aside from access to the hotel’s indoor pool and game room, the package offers a $15 prepaid game card to nearby Ryan’s Family Amusements Arcade.

After checking in, kids receive a “Kids’ Club” bag that’s stuffed with souvenirs and discounts to toy stores, gift shops, and more. There are complimentary snacks and sweets in the room, and in the morning, there’s free breakfast for kids when adult breakfast is purchased. When it comes time to wind down, the package also offers a 20 percent discount to the hotel spa, SpaFjor, which includes the children’s “Prince & Princess” menu.
