Depart from your location in New Hampshire in the morning to Newport, Rhode Island. Tour Newport Harbor under sail and give your loved ones a memorable perspective of Newport harbor, an experience that you and your family will treasure.
You will have lunch at the Atlantic Grill: Your choice of Lobster Roll, steak, or grilled chicken breast. After lunch you will tour The Breakers or the Newport Winery (based option selected). The Breakers is the grandest of Newport's summer "cottages" and a symbol of the Vanderbilt family's social and financial preeminence in turn of the century America.
Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt (1794-1877) established the family fortune in steamships and later in the New York Central Railroad, which was a pivotal development in the industrial growth of the nation during the late 19th century.The Vanderbilts had seven children. Their youngest daughter, Gladys, who married Count Laszlo Szechenyi of Hungary, inherited the house on her mother's death in 1934. An ardent supporter of The Preservation Society of Newport County, she opened The Breakers in 1948 to raise funds for the Society. In 1972, the Preservation Society purchased the house from her heirs. Today, the house is designated a National Historic Landmark. The self-guided tours are by Audio Wand so you can decide on what interests you. During the holiday season you will often find cookies and beverages popular in the 1920’s.
Visit the Newport Winery, known as New England’s largest grower of wine grapes, for a tour and tasting. Learn each step of the winemaking process and take the opportunity to buy wine available in only a few wine stores (at your own expense).
Your tour is approximately 8 hours and ends when you return to your original departure point.
