Travel Tips for Newport

Newport Gateway Transportation & Visitor Center

by Gypsystravels

Definitely stop in the visitor's center and pick up a map of Newport, get oriented with what you'd like to see and do, buy tickets to the various mansions and you can also purchase the trolley tickets here.

The visitor's center also sells postcards, souvenirs and other trinkets. During the peak summer season park your car here and just hop on the trolley, or better yet, walk.

Women's Right To Vote Meeting House

by grandmaR

After Oliver Hazard Perry Belmont died (1908) Alva Erskine Smith Vanderbilt Belmont reopened Marble House. In 1909, she founded the Political Equality League. She had a Chinese Tea House built on the seaside cliffs (right by the Cliff Walk) in 1914, and it was here that she hosted rallies for women's right to vote, such as the International Woman's Suffrage Convention. In 1921, she became president of the National Women's Party.

This picture of the Chinese Tea House was taken in 1970, probably from Cliff Walk before it was moved from the edge of the cliffs to a safer location in 1977.

Alva was interested in architectural design and became a member of the American Institute of Architects. She spent her later years in France and died in Paris in 1933. Marble House (including the Chinese Tea House) was sold to Frederick H. Prince in 1932.

Good Food

by Gypsystravels about Red Parrot

Newport has many places to eat. We decided to stop here during our visit in July 2005 and cool ourselves off in the air conditioned dining area. The service was friendly, and the food was good, but nothing special.

This is a popular three-story restaurant with an airy feel to it. There is a huge menu selection with frozen specialty drinks and of course dessert. Sip a yummy frozen margarita while you wait for your food to come out.

There is definitely something to please everyone. I can't recall what I had for lunch, but I believe it was a seafood quesadilla. I do recall the burgers and fries at the table next to us looking quite tempting though. Some of the specialty drinks were intriguing too.

Rosecliff

by cjg1

Rosecliff is one of the most recognizable mansions in Newport. It was used in the movie the Great Gatsby with Robert Redford and Mia Farrow. Tue Lies with Arnold Swarzeneger also was filmed here.

The main feature of the house is the heart shaped staircase. This is the oly part of the house your guide will allow you to take a picture (Mansions do not allow photography). Rosecliff has Newport's largest private ballroom. The house and it's furnishings are beautiful and transport you back to the time of the Guilded Age.

A Victorian Beauty - Chateau Sur-Mer

by Gypsystravels

A beautiful Victorian home and the most "palatial" at the time (before the many Vanderbilt homes came along), Chateau sur-Mer was built for the China trade merchant Willam Shepard Wetmore. The home was the site of "grand scale and lavish parties which ushered in the Gilded Age of Newport".

You can tour the interior of the home which still houses many of its original furnishings.
