"Children are born explorers," says Robert Burnetti, General Manager of Hotel Viking, "They are always discovering, seeking adventure and eager to learn. We want to encourage that curiosity and creativity."

Upon check-in at Hotel Viking, children ages 12 and under receive a Hotel Viking Kids’ Club bag packed with fun including a Viking coloring book and crayons, a mini-rubber duck, seasonal plush toy, re-usable and recyclable water bottle, and discounts at local kid-friendly shops. Kids enjoy special discounts, up to 15%, by showing their hotel key card at neighborhood spots including Ben & Jerry’s, Bellevue Kids, Groovy Gator, Helly Hansen, Life is Good Newport, Mimi’s for Kids, Music Box, Save the Bay Exploration Center, Sweet Berry Farm and Water Brothers Skate & Surf Shop.

Kids will also have complimentary access to Hotel Viking’s pop-up game room that offers fun activities including air hockey, Ping-Pong, arcade basketball, board games, a Pixity Photo Booth, and crafts. The pop-up game room is open now through March 2016. Children under 12 years of age also enjoy complimentary breakfast when dining with their parents. Each month, the hotel will feature a craft or activity. In November, young guests can participate in a scavenger hunt and in December, there will be a holiday crafts area as well as special table for writing letters to Santa Claus.

In addition to the kids club, Hotel Viking offers an indoor pool, a children’s spa menu at SpaFjor, a culinary menu for kids at One Bellevue – the hotel’s restaurant.

For little explorers ready to discover Newport, Hotel Viking offers easy access to the best the seaside town has to offer for visitors of all ages. Just down the road from the hotel are the Newport Mansions, several historic homes turned into museums. The Breakers is ideal for families as it offers a kid-friendly audio tour that tells the story of kids who lived there. History also comes alive at the International Tennis Hall of Fame, which offers interactive displays and, with reservations, a chance to play on the courts. For outdoor lovers, Newport is rich with opportunities to connect with nature. Cliff Walk is a 3.5 mile hike with dramatic views and drops. Fortunately much of the walk is stroller friendly. Cliff Walk starts (or ends) at Easton's Beach, a popular surf spot and home to the Save The Bay Exploration Center, an interactive marine science center showcasing more than 140 species from Narragansett Bay. For those with a sweet-tooth, a trip to the Newport Fudgery to watch the candy makers and sample their work is a must as is a visit to the Newport Creamery, known for its decadent ice cream.
