As the official tourism marketing organization for Newport and Bristol County we are very excited about the possibility of adding a significant new visitor attraction to the waters of Narragansett Bay to complement other area attractions and strengthen our overall tourism program… We would like to express our total enthusiasm for this potential project. It would be absolutely fantastic if we could welcome the USS John Kennedy here to start a new chapter in the ship’s great history.”
