Every once and a while, my boyfriend and I like to get away for just a night or two. It’s much more affordable than a full on vacation but it’s a nice way to recharge when things have been a little crazy.
One of our favorite places to go is Newport, RI. It’s a cute little town with a lot of history, including the Bellevue Ave mansions. There are tons of cute hotels and B&B’s to choose from and lots of delicious restaurants.
We went down to Newport for a night last weekend to celebrate me finishing my first MBA class (yay!). We had such a fun trip!
We stayed at an adorable bed & breakfast called The Victorian Ladies Inn. It was cozy with a friendly staff and a delicious breakfast included. We stayed in the Arthur room (I forgot to take a picture!) and it was really nice. Very clean and spacious and the bed was incredibly comfortable.
When we booked our hotel, we were also able to book discounted tickets to tour the famous Bellevue Ave mansions. We’ve been to some of the mansions before, but they’re so beautiful and intricate that I love going again and again.
On Saturday, we toured The Breakers (pictured above) and did the servant life tour at the Elms. On Sunday, we did the Rosecliff tour (pictures below). We were a bit tired by then, so we decided to save the last tour for another date. The great thing about the mansions tickets is they never expire!
It was a great one night getaway, and one I would suggest for any fellow New Englander, or someone visiting the area. There’s a little something for everyone! There are lots of shops and restaurants, beaches and historical tours. I love Newport and can’t wait to go back soon 🙂
