Friday we spent the day in Newport! We loved the drive over the bridges into Newport. The views were awesome! We started the day with lunch at The Red Parrot.
I had the most fantastic salad and a cup of clam chowder! Then it was off to the mansions! We decided to visit The Breakers mansion. I had been to the Marble House before and loved it, but we both wanted to see something new for both of us.
Inside the mansion, the Christmas decorations were incredible. There were hundreds of poinsettias, garland, Christmas trees, and beautiful ornaments.
The house itself was also amazing. The details in the walls, ceilings, and furniture was incredible. The house was just so ornate. I loved hearing the stories about the Rockefeller family and their summers spent at the mansion.
After the tour, Zach and I headed outside and walked around the grounds as well as the Cliffwalk, which backed right up to the mansion grounds.
The views were so incredible!
It was such an enjoyable afternoon!
We finished the day with a basketball game. We went to the URI-PC basketball game at the Ryan Center.
