To Newport, RI An Elite Retreat
A haven for America’s wealthiest residents in the late 19th century, Newport, Rhode Island is most famous for the grand mansions the country’s elite built as summer homes. These enormous homes have 50+ rooms, lavish interiors and spectacular gardens! Today, many of the extravagant homes are open to the public, most famously The Breakers, which is widely regarded as the grandest of them all. With 70 rooms, five floors and unparalleled views of the Atlantic Ocean, this Vanderbilt Mansion is the epitome of opulence. Take a self-guided tour through the decadent rooms for a glimpse into the lives of America's richest family. For the best views of the Newport Mansions, head to the Cliff Walk. From this public walkway along the rugged, you’ll see why Newport was the destination of choice for the city’s famous mansions. There's plenty of beaches, and the main commercial drag, Thames Street, is packed with wonderful bars and restaurants serving up delicious meals, most notably the locally caught shellfish!
