Quiet and nice for walking.

Enjoyed walking on this end and then walking through the streets to the Cliff Walk. This way, I believe you can see more of the mansions compared to cliff walk.

Enjoy the mansions and views on either side of this magnificient neighborhood. Ample parking exists at each mansion. Also shuttle service provided in case you don't feel like driving. Make to sure to bring water as there are no stores on route.

Just a pretty drive with incredible homes, you won't know where to look first. We drove this a couple of times just for fun. Twilight with the street lights may have been my favorite.

A drive full of beautiful houses that takes you out by the ocean! What more do you need?!? Even better yet, walk it with a camera!

If you want to see how the rich live this is the avenue to explore.The mansions are stunning. Traffic is a nightmare every time we have been there.

This is such a great drive. The homes along Bellevue Ave are a must see while in Newport. We had the pleasure of driving down Bellevue several times and would not get bored doing it over and over again.

Bottom Line: You can't come to Newport without taking a drive down Bellevue Ave. Details: We always drive though here on our way to the Cliff Walk and before we head home after a visit. Beautiful mansions on either side of this short drive. Would have loved to have visited on a Segway when it was still available.

When travelling down Bellevue Avenue, it is easy to feel like a character in F Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby! The view and sight of the mansions are filled with such history and wealth - and drama!
