Newport County is a breathtaking city by the sea in Rhode Island. Gorgeous and well preserved mansions on sprawling lawns by the water are enough to make you day dream on how fabulous it must be to live there.
Two of the 10 historic house museums I was able to visit with my kids are the Breakers and the Marble House- both jaw droppingly beautiful. The Breakers, is the grandest of them all , was built by Cornelius Vanderbilt II, while the Marble House was built by his brother William Kissam Vanderbilt.
Sorry for the limited photos. Picture taking wasn’t allowed inside the mansions:(
Before heading to the 2nd mansion, we stopped by the St. Mary’s Church. This was where John F. Kennedy and Jackie Bouvier were wed in September 12, 1953.
My favourite Newport Mansion- The Marble House
