Bellview Avenue is a beautifully shaded area of town where most of the mansions are located. You can see some of the homes, while some are well hidden behind fences and shrubbery. If you are visiting the mansions or heading to the Cliff Walk, Bellview is your destination. In some cases, you will be able to park your vehicle and... More

I would definitely drive down this road while in town. Some beautiful homes quite and a bit of history. There are options if you'd like a tour a mansion individually or like a five mansion package. If you're going to tour one I would suggest going early as it gets grounded midday

My wife and I drove it as she has a knee issue. It is a long walk if you go end to end. We drove and found several locations where there are free parking lots across from several mansions. The in close to town area has a lot of traffic and is slow moving but it clears up as you... More

We didn't have enough time to really visit some of the astonishing houses along this Avenue. So we were driving slowly along and were excited about the architecture and grandness of those villas.

Wonderful architecture with shops and restaurants mixed in. The historic Viking Hotel is an anchor and worth a visit.

If you like beautiful homes, then make sure you find this street and walk both sides. Tree lined and packed full of some of Newports finest homes. There are plaques along the way describing the owners and the houses.

Holy moly, if you like looking at houses (I do!) you need to take a walk along this beautiful tree-lined street. Every single one is beautiful in its own right and the family histories behind them is fascinating. Would suggest you walk it as there will be hundreds of other cars trying to drive it and if you're not able... More
