Driving along Ten Mile Drive, take in spectacular views of Newport's rugged southern coastline and the famous Bellevue Avenue, home to the summer cottages – think palatial mansions – of some of America's richest families. As you travel through Newport's colonial district, you’ll see Trinity Church, Redwood Library (possibly the oldest in the USA) and the Gothic-influenced St Mary's Church, where Jacqueline Bouvier married Senator John F Kennedy in 1953. Live like a Vanderbilt aboard MV Gansett, a beautifully restored wooden vessel. Sail the calm waters, learning all about the picturesque seaport of Newport and the major landmarks close to the shoreline.
