While staying near Cape Cod for a couple of weeks, we took a day and drove over to Newport to explore the Cliff Walk area. It was a great place to walk/hike and enjoy the water as well as see some HUGE mansions. Some allow tours, but we didn’t go inside any of them. We loved the different types of walking paths between each mansion and the water. I wonder if each homeowner is required to maintain their own part of the path, but I don’t know. Some of them were nice paved walks with benches, some were huge boulders easy to walk on, and then some required more careful climbing and rock scrambling. It was a very fun day, and we were very tired by the end.
After several hours at the Cliff Walk we found a place to enjoy a fresh lobster dinner. Yum!
