Road Trip: Newport, Rhode Island.

In an attempt to show my lovely British boys the best that NEW England has to offer, we took an overnight road trip to Newport, Rhode Island. Newport has always been one of my favourite places on Earth.  From when I was a little whipper-snapper and we would vacation there in the summertime to when my brother was a college student in the town, I have a lot of love and fond memories of this gorgeous seaside town.  Famous for a host of mansions inhabited previously by the likes of American elite such as the Vanderbilts and other notable families of the Gilded Age (does everyone know how much I love Edith Wharton?!), Newport is a destination that I thought the boys would not only enjoy but appreciate.

First order of business on the day?  Take an old school trolley up to the mansion houses...
