Description

Escape the city for the day and visit the charming, historic Newport mansions in coastal Newport, Rhode Island! With this private, full-day trip you'll enjoy roundtrip transportation with a private driver who will escort you to the extravagant mansions overlooking the ocean. Take your time visiting as few or as many mansions as you'd like, exploring their stately grounds and learning about the wealthy families who once occupied them.

Enjoy a day away from Boston with this private, full day trip to nearby Newport. Your private driver will chauffeur your group out of the city and south toward Rhode Island in your choice of vehicle. Leave the transportation to the professionals so you can enjoy an entire day of fun! 

Start your morning with pickup at your hotel or local Boston accommodations at 10am, and make your way out of the city. Drive roughly 70 miles or 1.5-hours until you arrive at the southern tip of the United States' smallest state. As you approach the historic district of the Newport mansions, you'll gaze in wonder at the vast size and beauty of these celebrated homes. The area is home to 11 historic properties and landscapes; 7 are now considered landmarks. The mansions' style and architecture span from the Colonial era to the Gilded Age, and uniquely represent America's social development. 

The day trip is yours to fill with the mansions that you'd most like to visit. Explore the Breakers and Marble House, two of Newport's grandest mansions and 19th century summer homes of the affluent Vanderbilt family, for truly lavish design. Walk to the French-inspired Elms and Rosecliff or visit the Victorian style Chateau-sur-Mer. Less ornate and extravagant in design, the neighborhood is also home to the Colonial era Isaac Bell House and Hunter House. Visit the Italian-villa style Chepstow or Gothic Revival style Kingscote for additional insight into America's historic architectural styles. 

While interior tours of the mansions come at an additional cost not included in your day trip, you are free to purchase tour tickets at any of the mansions. Opt for an audio tour and a single mansion entrance, a combination entrance to multiple mansions, or servant life tour. Alternately, enjoy a free walk around the exterior of the mansions, meandering through the well-kept grounds and enjoying the sweeping views many of them provide. Stroll the beloved Cliff Walk which runs behind the beautiful mansions and along the ocean below. After a full day of experiencing the indoor and outdoor beauty of the Newport mansions, grounds, Cliff Walk, and surrounding area, your driver will escort you back to your Boston hotel or accommodations.
