How did it take us so long to make it down to Newport?!! I have thoroughly enjoyed all the mini trips we have been able to make living on the east coast the last few years. A few hours drive in any direction can transport you to so many cool places. I have to say Rhode Island is now topping my list of favorite spots to take in all fall has to offer in New England. Before reaching Newport, we thought we would walk through the Brown campus (we always love to explore campuses- living in Boston it has been fun to see some of the Ivy League schools because they are all so beautiful!) The fall colors are unreal, I still have to pinch myself to remind myself that I actually LIVE in this autumn paradise! In Newport we walked the Cliffwalk, a path that takes you alongside of the stunning mansions of Newport. The 11 mansions on the Cliffwalk were all built in the late 1800's and were summer homes to New York Cities wealthiest families. The homes are absolutely beautiful and I only wish we had the time to tour a few of them! (next time!) We started the walk right as golden hour was starting and took the opportunity to take as many photos as possible as it seemed everything was just glowing with the low setting sun. We soaked up ever minute of daylight in Newport before jumping in our little zipcar to make our way back home. It was all in all, a perfect fall day!
