Tour with us through one of America's most pish cities, Newport, RI. This town has been voted by ABC's "Good Morning America" as one of the top ten most beautiful places during the holiday season.
Thousands of poinsettia plants, spectacular ever-green trees, wreaths, fresh flowers and 19th-century-style ornaments turn the mansions in Newport into a Christmas wonderland. In the morning, we will visit The Breakers, a 70-room mansion on 11 acres of oceanfront land. See the mansion fully decorated in its Yuletime finest.
Time is then provided for lunch and shopping at the beautiful waterfront area. We continue our adventure with a visit to William K. Vanderbilts' summer home, the Marble House-- 500,000 cubic feet of white marble, built in 1892. Sit back and relax as we drive along ten mile Ocean Drive and admire the spectacular views of Mansions and coves before we return home to Boston.
Newport is a high end New England seaport town, extremely popular among the mega-rich of America. Travel along Ocean Drive to get beautiful scenic views and see the magnificent Breakers Mansion. It is a short drive from Boston.
The Breakers Mansion is the largest and most opulent of the famous and historical Newport Mansions open to the public. Built by the Vanderbilt family at the turn of the century, this "summer cottage" stuns and amazes.
