I'll be visiting this area the first week of February. I'm staying at the Avenue of the Arts hotel near the mall. Since I'll be traveling alone I was hoping to get a few good restaurant recommendations where a person dining alone wouldn't feel out of place. Perhaps a location where you can eat at the bar. Something other than fast food.
Also curious if the whale watching trips out of Newport are worth the time\money? I could possibly do one of these on Sunday afternoon.
