We were in awe of the mansions in this area. Just huge and gorgeous! Upon arriving at The Breakers, we parked in the lot across the street. Free parking, by the way, and that's rare up here! You pay as you walk in. It is $19.50 pp. It does include an audio tour with headphones. I really enjoyed the audio tour. There was a lot of interesting info about the Vanderbilt family and the Gilded Age. The audio tour also offered additional info that you could choose to listen to or not. We listened to most of it and it was very entertaining! The house itself is over the top in detail and dripping in richness! Don't forget to look up. Most of the rooms have extremely ornate ceilings. I found the bathrooms very interesting as well. The view from the back of the house is breath taking. The only thing I wish we could have done was to walk on the Cliff Walk but it was raining. Mother Nature's fault and noone else's! I wish we had had time to tour some of the other homes as well but The Breakers was definetly worth it!
