Yes, great gatsby travelled this street.

Wander down the avenue and look at the mansion and imagine what 1900 must have looked like with the balls and the carriages going down the avenue. Its a look back in time.

Gorgeous boulevard lined with centuries-old trees, amazing gilded-age mansions and beautiful Victorian homes. One portion near Cliff Walk was under construction which made traffic difficult, but otherwise worth ambling.

Bellevue Avenue is an elegant Avenue in Newport RI. The mansions that you see while driving down Bellevue Avenue is very enjoyable. My family from Canada enjoyed seeing all the mansions which inspired them to do several tours of them.

The drive on Bellevue Ave in Newport is a must - to see all the houses from a time long ago and how the "rich" lived - the do have tours at the houses - you will end up at the ocean if you keep going on the road - A great ride.

Nice to take a relaxing drive up and down after walking through the various homes. Sit back, drive slow, and take it all in.

A jaw dropping, awe inspiring drive as you travel between some of the most beautiful mansions in America. It is so hard to keep your eyes to the front as you drive between the magnificence of the wealthy lifestyle. Wow!

It’s a nice tree-lined street that roughly parallels the Cliff Walk. I dropped off the kids to walk the Cliff Walk at Forty Steps and picked them up near Bellevue Avenue and Ledge Road. But there is also a bus line (#67) that goes up on Bellevue Ave.
