The Breakers & The Elms OPEN and decorated for the holidays.
Sparkling Lights at The Breakers: An Outdoor Magical Wonderland returns.
Holidays at the Newport Mansions will be more spectacular than ever this year. The exterior of The Breakers and its landscape will again 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.
Inside, The Breakers and The Elms will be lavishly decorated with thousands 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 – will again grace the Great Hall of The Breakers.
Closed Thanksgiving Day & Christmas Day. On December 24, last tour admission is 3 p.m.
