Newport, RI
We took the kids to Newport last weekend. We started on the Cliffwalk. Mike and Jess stayed with us to Narragansett then Jason and I went on to Marine by ourselves. When we got to Marine, we decided it was too hot to go the next 2 miles since there were no cutoffs inbetween. That night Jason and I did the ghost tour around downtown Newport - lot of fun!! The next day, Mike and Jason went to the arcade while I took Jess to see the Green Animals. As often as I've been to Newport, I've never seen them (I have seen all the mansions though). I decided to become a member of the preservation society so now I can get into the mansions for free. I want to go this fall on my own and then again at Christmas with the kids to see Santa. What I save on these tours will more then make up for my membership fee. I also got a free ticket for behind the scenes and rooftop tour which I want to go on at the Elms. The Breakers has new rooms open to the public. Lots to see.
