Went on a roadtrip to Newport, RI yesterday. The highlight of our trip was visiting the Breakers and the Elms, two of the most opulent of the Newport Mansions. No one has actually lived in them for eighty years or so. They are now historical landmarks which have been restored and preserved for the public to see. Both houses have great self guided audio tours if you are looking for something fun and interesting to do in New England on a summer day.
