Photo A Day- N for…..

Newport is a beautiful seaside city on Aquidneck Island in Newport County, Rhode Island. Some of the wealthiest families in the 20th century used to summer in Newport and built cottages mansions by the cliffside with spectacular views. The most popular of them being The Breakers built by the Vanderbilt family. The Breakers derived its name from the waves breaking on the cliffside rocks, a truly beautiful sight. The mansion’s architecture represents the Gilded Age and was one of the most opulent mansions in Newport. I spent an entire day touring the mansion, the gardens surrounding it and the cliffside walk. I definitely recommend visiting Newport for a weekend if you are in the tri-state area.
