Newport, Rhode Island is surrounded by dangerous, ragged cliffs. They are also quite beautiful. At the entrance to the harbour is the Castle Hill Light - greeting visitors as they approach.
The rocks there are amazing - the wind and sea have shaped such drama into them. Taking an end of summer stroll along the famous Cliff Walk in Newport. This view of the ocean is right in front of Ochre Court mansion.
This is 'The Bells', an abandoned horse stable found at Brenton Point State Park, Newport, Rhode Island. It is in a very sad state and looks like it will collapse fairly soon. But inside, the lighting and graffiti make for very dramatic photos. I loved the bright, bold colours of the graffiti and the sun pouring in through the hole in the roof.
#StunningStructures One of many Rhode Island lighthouses, the Castle Hill Light has been guiding mariners into Narragansett Bay since 1890. It was such a peaceful and tranquil morning in Newport. The rising sun struggled to break through the morning clouds. There was only a few moments to capture such a scene and felt so fortunate to be there. Did you think China, or Japan? This is actually Alva Vanderbilt Belmont’s Chinese tea house, in Newport Rhode Island. Sunrise Here, the soft, gentle morning sun is lighting up the cathedral at St. George's School in Middletown, Rhode Island. South facing shot. Gorgeous for sunsets. Beware of tourists and other photographers. Busy spot. The Rose Island lighthouse was built in 1870. During WW1 and WW2, it was used to store explosives as part of the Navy Torpedo Station. The island and its lighthouse are run by the private, non-profit Rose Island Lighthouse Foundation.
The lighthouse has a museum and from the top, one is offered spectacular views of Newport Harbour. The Castle Hill inn was built as a private residence in 1874 and today it is wonderfully persevered as a historical inn and provides great views of the Atlantic Ocean and the beginning of Narraganset Bay.
A few minutes walk is the Castle Hill Lighthouse. Definitely worth the walk. 2015. We don't sail but were fortunate to go out with a Naval War College professor who is a master (he races). A beautiful tour of the harbor. This 103 year old house on a rock was built by JS Lovering Wharton (yes, like the B school) as a man cave escape from his sea fearing wife It was purchased by an architect for $3600 (back taxes!), and restored in 1961. It's address? 1 Narragansett Bay ( there is no 2!). Incredibly cool. Inside the Breakers Mansion, Newport Rhode Island.
Built by the Vanderbilt family as a summer home in 1893, the Touched by an angel.
Late in the day on a cold, exhausting, afternoon, I saw this miraculous sight of a woman looking for spiritual inspiration. Something tells me, she found it. The small Goat Island Lighthouse and the Newport Bridge in the background. A very cold and blustery sunset made only colder by the occasional sea spray washing across my face. But when a scene like this offers itself to me, it's so easy to forget the biting cold and focus on the magnificent view. End of summer cruise on a sailboat around Narragansett Bay. Passing in front of Castle Hill light house on our way to Newport. It's late September and Summer is having its final bow before Autumn settles in for good.
I wanted a photo to capture that feel, a very late in the season, summer day in New England with the tired and dried out vegetation, dusty foot paths and a look of something old fashioned, of bygone days. Castle Hill light as seen from the Rum Runner II boat tour of Narragansett Bay. The tour leaves from Bannister's Wharf in Newport, RI. The cocktail cruise includes rum punch, which is fitting since this boat was made in 1929 during prohibition to deliver rum and out run the police! Beautiful Ocean Drive in Newport Rhode Island. This place is beautiful and has some of the most amazing houses I've ever seen! Honor and beautiful old Vanderbilt’s palace “Breakers”. It is like Versailles in France or imperator’s Pavel First palace near St-Petersburg, Russia. This is the time when America was great with grate monopolies as “Standard Oil”, «Carnegie Steel Company», «Accessory Transit Company». It’s a famous “old money”)). When you go to the Newport, better will be there all day and buy $45 ticket for 5 palaces. You can choose which palaces you visit. So you will be spare, like Cornelius Vanlerebilt himself, who refused to give up champagne, because he considered it too expensive. #breakers #newport #asmus_kate #storyteller, #americanhistory #oldmoney
Enjoying the last full weekend of Summer by talking a leisurely stroll along Newport's famed Cliff Walk. The race back to port. Sailing between Hammersmith Farm in Newport and Jamestown There's a nice spot off of Taylor Point in Jamestown that'll give you a great vantage point of the Newport Bridge. There aren't many bridges like this in New England, so I'd consider it a must see if you're in the area. Went to Newport to see Tony Bennett in concert. On the way, drove past First Beach, seeing the sun setting and a thick grey fog rolling in like a heavy blanket. Snapped this shot seconds before the sun was blocked out by the clouds. The scene reminded me of one on Tony's most famous songs, about San Francisco. And yes, he sang it. Beautiful spot to visit Beautiful sunset..😎 Lighthouse sunset #troveontuesday #AdventurePacked Mid afternoon exploring around the Castle Hill lighthouse in historic Newport The pond side A building at the IYRS, boat building school. Newport, RI USA
Camel Topiaries on the lawn of an ocean-front mansion. July 4 th getaway weekend enjoy chillaxation Great day walking by the Cliff of Newport amazing amazing #epic weekend Newport Cliff Walk at sunset.
The Cliff Walk is a 3.5 mile walk that borders the ocean on one side and Newport's famous gilded mansions on the other. ❤️ Nice scenic walk in Newport, RI Chateau sightings in RI . Honestly forgot the name. It's like the castle in your childhood fairytale love story.
#stunningstructure Gorgeous mansion and grounds!! They offer great tours full of history about the legacy of the Vanderbilt family. Also the views are breathtaking, right on the coast of Newport, RI!
TIP: save your entrance fee ticket stub for a big discount on your next visit!!
#StunningStructures Ocean-view walk along a mostly paved path. Mansions from the late 1800s all along the path are reminiscent of castles in Europe. Cliff walk is beautiful and recommended The stairs and the cliffs :) What a beautiful shoreline, it's like walking through a fairytale. Restaurants and shops are amazing and very friendly place to visit. History! Colors! Beautiful. Park anywhere downtown and you'll be able to walk all over the town taking in the beautiful architecture. On Rose Island, a small, often overlooked island in Narragansett Bay. On it is a beautiful little lighthouse. Out of service in the early 1970's but brought back to life through the Rose Island Lighthouse Foundation where people can live at the lighthouse and work as a lighthouse keeper. Beautiful views of Newport Harbor and the open ocean behind.
I could see myself sitting in one of these Adirondack chairs with a glass of Champagne in one hand, watching the boats - any my cares - sail past Everyone needs to take this walk, especially at sunset set. 40 steps Goose neck cove New port R.I. .. Beautiful place to play Great walk about 3.5 miles Slight Drizzle about a mile away created a beautiful rainbow for us I had to use a filter. ... U can see the rain shaft in the left An old fashion in the oldest tavern in America. As an old fashioned lover, this has been the best. And not just because I walked 3 miles for it! The recipe is with a walnut bitters, soaked cherries in brandy and with a cinnamon simple syrup ... I have to cut myself off after two! The Breakers Explored the Newport Mansions in Rhode Island in mid November. Was worried Newport would be dead for the fall/winter but it was great! Almost all shops and restaurants were open and the mansion tours were incredibly fascinating. #troveon #newport #rhodeisland #newengland This is one of the many beautifully restored old homes in the colonial section of Newport. Once run down and close to abandon, it has become increasingly fashionable the past 20 years or so. Most were built between 1700 and 1800 and bear the names of original owners and dates constructed (plaques next to front doors on ea house). Incredible part of American history, and makes for a lovely walking tour. This place is great, and an institution in Newport. Classic New England fare, with enough America's Cup memorabilia to satisfy even the most ardent sailing fan. Great vibe throughout including indoor and outdoor spaces, and a really cool bar. The restaurant is smack in the middle of one of the more happening areas in Newport (shopping, nightlife, etc), right next to the Black Pearl! For tennis junkies like me, this is a must see. Took a vc guided tour of the museum, then played a couple sets on the grass; great afternoon! Doris Duke's crib from the stone bridge on the cliff walk in Newport. Interesting and eccentric gal, who lived alone for the most part, in this behemoth. The private, guided tour is well worth it. Every spring, one of my favourite things to see is a field which grows tons of daffodils. This beautiful patch of land is on the side of the road welcoming visitors to Newport.
The flowers bloom for all too short a time. It is such a delight to see and well worth a trip to Newport just for this Art in the ruins Cliff Walk I saw this old knot in a tree and then looked inside. It was a bird's home. But part of me thought on the novel, 'To kill a Mockingbird' and the knot in the tree where Jem and Scout traded things with Boo Radley. Then the light changed, creating this interesting halo, as if to highlight the knot. IYRS is a boat building school in Newport.
Walking around the streets, we came across a sign regarding a 'Walking Tour' and followed it in between the school buildings and into a huge building where they were building this sailboat. A student then found us and started to show us around. He showed us his projects and what other students were working on. He was extremely proud and was very generous to take the time to show us, strangers, around.
If your ever in Newport, I suggest finding this school (449 Thames St). Maybe you'll be lucky enough to be there on one of the days they launch their boats. Wandering around Goat Island by bike led us to a beautiful #beach What a pretty view😀 Newport Rhode Island Its yacht-filled harbor hosted Americans cup. Ocean view from kit kites A beautiful spot to watch the sunset View of the breathtaking Cliff Walk from Doris Duke's Rough Point Estate in Newport, RI. Enjoyable guided tours of the Duke estate go off hourly for $25 per person (admission price goes to fund restoration projects in Newport). The Cliff Walk is free public access to the shoreline of the island. Walking along Spring Street in Newport, found a small art studio. In the window was his collection of brushes. I just loved the mix of all the colours.
Make sure to wear decent shoes as you explore this beautiful waterfront walk that takes you past historic and modern-day mansions. A snowy view of Newport, Rhode Island. Newport horizon On Narraganset Bay The Cliff Walk Newport, Rhode Island A wonderful treat. This synagogue, the oldest in the US, is of historical importance to both the Jewish community and the general American population. Completely worth checking out. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and the visitors center provides additional historical information. The back if the Elms. A vacation home for Edward Berwind. Created in the Gilded Age and run much like a proper English estate. Take the tour if you are in the area. Arguably the most famous of the Newport mansions, the Breakers is worth every penny. The audio-guided tour takes about an hour, more if you listen to the bonus features. Tips: try to go in the off-season when it's not as crowded and be sure to ask for a AAA discount when buying your ticket! Nice stroll by the ocean Ornate and huge summer home of the Vanderbilt family. The Breakers is the grandest of Newport's summer NEWPORT MANSIONS OVERLOOK CLIFFSIDE OCEAN VIEWS Newport is a city set on Aquidneck Island in the New England state of Rhode Island. Its yacht-filled harbor hosted the America’s Cup, a renowned annual sailing regatta, for many years. Newport is also known for the Gilded Age mansions lining Bellevue Avenue, some of which are now museums. The most famous is The Breakers, an 1895 mansion patterned after a Renaissance palace.
