A lot to see even if you don't pay to enter the mansions. The street itself is very picturesque. We took a lot of pictures of and from the street. We also went onto the grounds of several of the mansions without going in this time. We go to Newport almost annually (for four years now). This time we went... More

If you can't afford to go into the mansion you can at least drive down the street and see them. The trolley runs along the way too. The area is beautiful and there are some pretty cool sights.

We always drive our out of town visitors along here so they can see one of the important heritage and grandeur areas of historic Newport.

Much better to walk to see the details of the beautiful homes. Flat so very easy. There are trolly stops all along so I believe that when you have had enough you can wait for one. I do not know the system and how it works. We walked all over .

I never tire of seeing the way folks lived in the late 1800's. Cant imagine the wealth it took for such a lifestyle. I have never seen so many magnificent "cottages" in one spot.

The mansions along Bellevue Ave. are nothing short of spectacular. They all could be hotels and their grounds are just as impressive as the homes. The only trouble is that people want to drive slow to see the homes or take pictures and there are no places to pull over and we did not want to slow up the locals... More

...Especially on a nice fall day. The mansions and private residences are impressive and fun to look at even you don't go into every one of the open to the public mansions.

Always interesting and entertaining to see how the upper class lived. I would never have such a big residence, but it's fun to see what they considered home. One of three mansions I toured.
