Access to most of the popular mansions. Can walk or drive to all mansions. Free parking. Lots of shopping along the avenue for food or gifts. Some specialty gift shops and restaurants along the avenue too

I jog up and down Bellevue Ave all the time. Nice running along all the mansions. Traffic is horrendous in the summer time so do yourself a favor and keep the car back at the house or hotel. You can basically walk all around Newport. Nice stores to shop and a few bars and tattoo parlors.

If you want the real feel of Newport, this is it. The "cottages" on this unique avenue are our American version of the Loire Valley chateaux, so suspend disbelief and take a stroll. The cool breezes of Newport, the incredible landscaping, the avenue itself are all worth the price--free!

What better way to spend a cold March day that to cruise up and down Bellevue Avenue and check out the mansions and the regular homes! Day dreaming about which one you would rather own is a fine way to pass time on a blustery March day!

Another area that you need to get out of the car and walk. I think I discover something new every time we walk it.
