The Breakers

It is one of the must-visit mansions in Newport and its best known for Vanderbilt and his wealth. It looks like a beautiful place like that in Europe. It allows you to see what craftsmanship and the human imagination can do. We spent about an hour and a half to complete our sightseeing. The best time to visit this place is in the morning when it opens as the place can get crowded in the later hours of the day.

Marble House

The home is made out of marble, which shows how the rich people lived in the golden years. They organize an audio tour that is equally beautiful to the ears. Richard Morris Hunt and Alva Vanderbilt created the mansion. It is a must see when you are in Newport.

Ocean Drive

Your trip to Newport is incomplete if you don’t take the drive through this ocean. The stunning views and beautiful scenery will make your journey worthwhile. You can go on gazing at the heavenly mansions. I have experienced the drive multiple times, and tourists should not miss it.  The best part is that it comes at no additional cost.
