We drove down to Newport, Rhode Island to tour the mansions. A friend of mine recommended this place to me because she knows our love of the Biltmore Mansion and the history of it. I am so happy that she brought this place to my attention because it was one of my favorite days!
We purchased the five house pass and were able to visit four: Rosecliff, Marble House, Breakers and Chateaus-Sur-Mer.
The inner feminist in me appreciated these "Votes for Women" souvenirs. I loved the quote "Well behaved women rarely make history".
This was the beautiful view behind the majority of the mansions as they were off the water. I am not a big water person, but I would not mind waking up to this view in the mornings.
Of course, I had to have a cup of clam chowder soup, because that is a must when in New England.
After lunch we continued our mansion tour...
Again, that wraps up the posts from my Fall vacation. Seriously, the best trip! If you missed any of the previous posts, here are the links:
