Okay, you guys are heading to Newport, Rhode Island!" The guys stay at Gurney's Newport Resort and Marina, and play a rugby game at Fort Adams with the Newport Rugby Club. Bachelorette Hannah Brown has evening conversations with the dude-bros at Linden Place in Bristol. The next day includes a lobster fishing date near Sakonnet Light, dinner at the White Horse Tavern, a concert at the Jane Pickens Theatre, and a cocktail party at Belcourt of Newport.
