On Mother’s Day, Chris and I decided to take the gruesome twosome for a walk along one of Newport’s most famous attractions – The Cliff Walk. The Cliff Walk is a 3.5 mile path along the gorgeous coastline of Newport, RI. The Cliff Walk runs behind several of the Newport Mansions and it’s an absolutely gorgeous place to go for a walk.
We started the walk at the beginning, which was right next to First Beach on Memorial Drive . At that point along the path, it’s paved and pretty easy to navigate, but there are some rocky, unpaved sections further down along the path.
About a mile or so into the walk, we came to the first of the mansions along the trail; The Breakers – which is the largest and most famous of the mansions. At that point, the boys were completely done with the walk and were begging to go back. After a quick pit stop for a picture in which neither of them would cooperate for, we headed back to the car.
Here are a couple of the pictures I snapped along the way. The view is absolutely amazing isn’t it?
The Cliff Walk is free, but depending on where you park, you may have to pay for a meter.
