The City of Newport, located in the upper northeast area of Vermont, is a four seasons resort area. It is bordered to the north by the Canadian Border and is the southern port of Lake Memphremagog.
Newport is a gateway between New England and Canada. The city lies on the southern shore of Lake Memphremagog, whose name is derived from an Abenaki Indian word meaning "beautiful waters." On the western side of the 32-mile lake rises Owl's Head, named after an American Indian chief. Its 3,360 foot summit offers impressive views. Newport City is right off I-91 on Lake Memphremagog.
