Newport, Rhode Island
June 2009
While on an extended business trip to Naval Station Newport, I got a chance to get out on the weekend and do some sightseeing. Besides walking about 10 miles, I took tours of two mansions (The Breakers & Marble House), toured the Breaker's stables & carriage house, walked part of the Cliff Walk and did some shopping. If you have to unexpectedly get stuck somewhere, Newport is a good choice!

Like everything at the Breakers mansion, the gates are huge
