A Beach Lover: A Trip To The Newport Mansions

Every year, my Mom and I usually do one thing that is super "Christmassy".  The last couple of years we got all dressed up and headed into the City to see the Nutcracker.  This year, we decided to switch it up a little and headed to Newport, RI to see the Mansions all decorated for Christmas.

If you've never been, I highly recommend going at Christmas time!
Upon arriving to the mansions they hand you a headset that has a pre-guided tour on it that you can listen to- just push play!

Our first stop was called:

"The Breakers"

The Breakers used to be owned by The Vanderbilt Family and was built in the 1800's.  The 70 room mansion is amazing and the view of the ocean in the backyard is just breathtaking.

 Our next stop, was:

  "The Elms"
A short driving distance away was our second stop- "The Elms".  I definitely liked "The Breakers" better, but "The Elms" was still AMAZING.

I think we might have started a new Christmas tradition!  If you LOVE Christmas decor then this tour is for you.
