What you can expect

Admire the expansive estates built by America’s early industrialists and stroll along the charming streets of Newport on this fascinating tour of Rhode Island’s stunning coast. Enjoy hearing colourful tales about the area and spend some free time checking out nearby attractions with discounted admission.

Leave your Boston hotel and ride south in comfort to reach the rocky shores of Rhode Island. Arrive in Newport and embark on an intriguing walking tour in town, listening to stories about the city’s past. Meander between beautiful examples of colonial-era architecture and snap photos of elegant sailing boats bobbing in the harbour.

Spend the afternoon wandering through the unbelievably lavish homes of the area’s former residents. Start at the Breakers, where Cornelius Vanderbilt II and his family spent their summers. Spread out over 13 acres (5 ha), this remarkable residence has over 70 rooms filled with opulent décor. Take a look inside before heading to your next stop.

Just a few blocks away, explore the spectacular grounds of the Elms, built in 1901 for the immensely successful coal barons of the Berwind family. Leaving the grounds, flip open your included guide book full of discounts to local restaurants and attractions. Fill your afternoon at sites like the International Tennis Hall of Fame or the Naval War College, before heading back to Boston.
