The gardens in the front of the Breakers Mansion in Newport, Rhode Island
During the Gilded Age, many families summered in Newport. They left behind some of the most beautiful and best-preserved mansions in the U.S. Tour them to see what life was like for some here in the 19th century. Explore the manicured grounds, cliffside views and ornate decor of over 12 mansions lining Bellevue Avenue and scattered along Ocean Avenue. Some of the must-sees are The Breakers, Marble House and Rosecliff.
If it's peace and quiet you're after, Newport's 3.5-mile Cliff Walk is your ticket to escape. On one side, you'll have infinite views of the Atlantic Ocean and the sound of waves crashing against the rocks. On the other, you'll catch another glimpse of the Gilded Age mansions. It's the best of both worlds.
