Arrive in Newport
Meet our Guide for a tour of Newport’s ten mile drive. Starting at Belleview Avenue, past mansions with names like Rosecliff, Astor’s Beechwood, Vanderbilt’s Breakers and Belcourt Castle to Doris Duke’s Rough Point then along the ocean with spectacular views at Bailey’s Beach and Fort Adams, it’s a drive like no other! Then we arrive at the hotel and freshen up before a Welcome Dinner.
Time for holiday shopping at Bowen’s Wharf and the Brick Market Place across from the harbor. We then go aboard the Majestic for a delectable Luncheon cruise which shows off the first class amenities of the ship combined with the unsurpassed beauty of Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay. Later we visit one of Newport’s Grand Mansions – the Breakers, built by Cornelius Vanderbilt in 1893. Here we’ll enjoy the spectacular Christmas decorations, elegant refreshments and Victorian music. A delightful evening we will long remember.
One last stop at Belcourt Castle for a guided tour of the exquisite chateau decked out in Christmas finery before we depart for home.
