#1 of 40 in Tours in Newport
Take a walk through American architectural history as you view Newport Mansions. The Preservation Society of Newport cares for the mansions and keeps 11 of the 14 properties open to the public. Book a tour through The Breakers, one of the most luxurious summer haunts of the Vanderbilts, or Marble House, where the former Mrs. William K. Vanderbilt built a Chinese tea house on the cliffs over the sea. The glamour and opulence continue in nine other restored houses, all representing different periods in architecture dating back to the late 18th century. Visit the Green Animals Topiary Garden to bushes that are sculpted seasonally. Consider purchasing a ticket for all 11 houses online before you go.
