Whats with the Pineapple?......
Trading from the Caribbean and the South Seas has always been a key part of Newport history and the pineapple, displayed throughout the city, has been a symbol of hospitality in Newport since the colonial era. Sea captains returning home after months at sea would bring exotic fruits back from the Caribbean. A pineapple would be placed in front of the captain’s home to signal his return and to welcome friends in to share his good fortune.
Newport has long enjoyed the reputation of being a beautiful seaside community and resort. In addition to being dubbed “America’s First Resort”.
