If you are looking to get into the mood of the Christmas season, try going to Newport and visiting the Breakers. It is all dressed up with lighted and trimmed trees everywhere. The decorations are wonderful.

Recently visited the Breakers and this home is phenomenal! It is truly extraordinary. The Christmas decorations and water views are so beautiful. It amazes me that these homes were only used 6 weeks a year. This is a must see in Newport!

After touring Marble House to see the decorations and Santa Claus we decided to take in one more mansion to see the decorations. Both were well worth seeing but the Breakers, in my opinion, was the better of the two.
