Completed in 1892, the Marble House—a 500,000-cubic-foot, white marble summer "cottage"—was presented to Alva Vanderbilt by her husband, William K. Vanderbilt, as a gift for her 39th birthday. After a tour of the 70-room mansion, wander the beautifully restored waterfront on your own; sample local fare for lunch as you explore the numerous shops. On the water side, view the sleek racing sailboats, private yachts, Newport's local fishing fleet, plus other ships from around the world. After the free time, explore another of Newport's mansions, and then sit back and relax for a ride along Ocean Drive before heading back to Boston. The 10-mile ride along Ocean Drive includes views of spectacular mansions and secluded coves.|
