It's a beautiful street lined with America's castles. Well worth a trip and worth the price to see the houses. Each house has its own unique personality!

nothing special, I didn't really find it so great. there is a lovely art gallery there, however, and the owner is very interesting.

Driving and walking this historic street in Newport brings you back to a time of ridiculous wealth and ostentation. Mansion after mansion after mansion. Beautiful works of art. Mastery of architecture. But the money that built them is just ridiculous. A sight to see in Newport. Did not tour any of the mansions as I refuse to pay for that.

It was a pleasure to see Bellevue Avenue looking so good after 40 years away. A delight to see all the great Newport mansion lining the Avenue as well as the commercial district. Hotel Viking is remarkably upgraded over the years, while the Bellevue Avenue shopping center which I remember opening in the 1950's looks so seedy and sad. Great opportunity, but not sure for what.

This road has may of the mansions (from the days of the rich and famous) that can be toured. We only did the Breakers. You could probably tour 3 of them in a day.
