Holidays at the Newport Mansions 2020
The Breakers is lavishly decorated with hundreds of poinsettias, spectacular ornamented evergreens, wreaths, fresh flowers, decorations on all mantelpieces and many other festive touches. The 15-foot-tall ”poinsettia tree” – always a visitor favorite – graces the Great Hall of The Breakers.
Join us as we add a new sparkle to your holiday tradition of visiting the Newport Mansions!
Holidays at the Newport Mansions are more spectacular than ever this year, with our new outdoor experience. For the first time, the exterior of The Breakers and its landscape are awash in thousands of festive colored lights, including 28 spruce trees glittering and glowing; The Breakers façade bathed in color; and illumination of the historic paths, shrubbery and trees in various colors. The Children’s Cottage is outlined in lights and visitors can peek through the windows at Santa’s Workshop inside. Holiday music fills the air.
