  • Newport: Self-Guided Combo Tour

    3. Newport: Self-Guided Combo Tour

    Start the tour at the visitor center and explore Newport with a self-guided driving tour. See everything this seaside town has to offer at your own pace. As you drive down Bellevue Avenue, known as the "most beautiful avenue in the world", see and learn about the gorgeous Gilded Age Mansions along the way - including The Breakers, Marble House, The Elms, Rosecliff, Château-Sur-Mer, and more. Continue along Ocean Drive, featuring breathtaking vistas. Learn about Newport's historic past, and iconic American millionaires like the Vanderbilts and Astors. Then, park up and stroll along the famous Cliff Walk which features the raw, untamed, crashing waves of the Atlantic to one side and lavish Gilded Age mansions to the other. This juxtaposition creates one of the most beautiful scenic walks in the world.

    It was very educational and easy to understand. I got to do the tour of the mansions but I would like to listen to the tour of the cliff walk now that I’m back in New York just to listen to the history. Will I be able to do that.
