Be picked up from your downtown Boston hotel and begin your 120 km journey to Newport in a 14-seater mini-coach. Along the way enjoy some complimentary snacks and bottled water or read over the free Newport guide book.
Your first stop is the Breakers, the Vanderbilt family's summer home. On a 90-minute self-guided audio-tour you will explore the 70 room summer cottage and see how the wealthiest families lived during the gilded age. Here you can also spend some time exploring the cliffs on a cliff walk. Next, it is back to the mini-coach for a bus tour of Newport. Pass St Mary's Parish, where John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier were married in 1953. After the bus tour, visit America's oldest existing synagogue, the Touro Synagogue.
With your free time you can some time shopping or have lunch on the waterfront. If you are a sports fan you can enjoy discount admission to the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Next it is a group visit to the Elms mansion, where you can take a 90-minute self-guided audio-tour.
After the tour, return to the mini-coach, sit back and relax and enjoy the ride back to Boston.
