The Breakers OPEN DAILY - November 21 through January 10, 2021
The Elms OPEN DAILY - November 21 through January 3, 2021
Both houses will be lavishly decorated with hundreds of poinsettias, spectacular ornamented evergreens, wreaths, fresh flowers, dining tables set with period silver and china, decorations on all mantelpieces and many other festive touches. The 15-foot-tall ”poinsettia tree” – always a visitor favorite – will return to 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 will be more spectacular than ever this year, with our new outdoor experience. For the first time, the exterior of The Breakers and its landscape will be 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 will be outlined in lights and visitors will be able to peek through the windows at Santa’s Workshop inside. Holiday music will fill the air.
