Christmas in Newport
December 8 @ 8:00 am - 8:00 pm EST$145
Description: We’ll tour the grandest of these summer “cottages,” The Breakers, a 70-room mansion built for Cornelius Vanderbilt and his family, considered one of America’s finest examples of the Gilded Age. We’ll also visit two nearby mansions, Marble House, and The Elms. We’ll have lunch on our own in historic downtown Newport and then we will conclude our trip with drives past the scene of The America’s Cup race, The International Tennis Hall of Fame, and Hammersmith Farm, the childhood home of Jacqueline Bouvier and location of her wedding reception to JFK.
