Newport Mansions, Newport, Rhode Island
Bellevue Avenue, Newport, Rhode Island 02840| Map |
Home to such iconic former homes as Kingscote and Rosecliff (where Houdini once dined), the Newport Mansions area is perfect for those interested in architecture, history and design. Thanks to the Servant Life Tour, parents and kids can also see Newport life through the eyes of its butlers, maids and cooks. The kitchens and laundry rooms are surprisingly just as interesting as the grand ballrooms and manicured gardens. In the summertime families can enjoy a leisurely lunch at the Marble House Chinese Tea House or The Elms Carriage House. Plus kids will love a visit to the lush Green Animals topiary garden to check out all the animal-shaped shrubs.
