Christmas at the Mansions
About This Tour
Come away with us by tour bus to dazzling Newport and experience the wonder of Christmas in total splendor! On this magical outing you will tour Newport’s two most celebrated mansions, Marble House and Breakers, both lavishly decorated for Christmas. In addition to the stunning beauty you will see in these homes, you will learn the intriguing story of the family who built these grand estates at the height of the American Gilded Age. In the middle of the day you will have free time for lunch and Christmas shopping in old town Newport. As the sun sets, the grounds of Breakers will become a Christmas wonderland as holiday music fills the air, and its landscape is awash in hundreds of thousands of lights. There is nothing like Christmas at the Mansions!
