Explore Newport, one of the prominent cities that heralded America’s famed Gilded Age. Today, yachts, fabulous mansions and millionaires are Newport’s staple.
Visit two opulent mansions in Newport, one among which is Mrs. Vanderbilt's magnificent Marble House, with 500,000 cubic feet of white marble built in 1892. Its extravagant gold ballroom is worth seeing. Although it was designed as a summer house, Marble House is a palace that set the precedent for the Gilded Age, Newport's transformation from a sleepy summer colony of small wooden cottages to a legendary resort of stone mansions.
Move on to Newport's beautifully restored waterfront for shopping and leisurely sightseeing of the local culture. See the glamorous private yachts, modern racing sailboats, Newport's fishing fleet and ships from around the world. Enjoy the ten-mile Ocean Drive with spectacular views of mansions and secluded coves before returning to Boston.
