Newport Rhode Island is an old colonial coastal town that was established in 1639 by a “splinter group of religious dissenters.”

I love the “Mystery Tower” whose origins are still debated. Is it a vestige of a lost Norse settlement and dates to the end of the first millennium or is it a colonial windmill dating from about 1670?

Take the Cliff Walk to see the Gilded Age mansions built by the Vanderbilts. Then tour these mansions on Bellevue Street. The Breakers (1895) was the summer home of Cornelius Vanderbilt II.

English: The Great Hall of The Breakers in Newport, Rhode Island, United States Photographer’s note: This photograph is not great quality because photography is not allowed while on tour of The Breakers. That said, I made an effort to take an image good enough to give a viewer a good idea of the room. Thanks for understanding. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
