The Cliff Walk

Today on Remember "When"sday I go back to Newport, Rhode Island.  A beautiful walk along the cliffs and among the mansions adds to this incredible site.  You will feel as if it is the 1920's and you are walking by a party full of the wealthiest citizens in New England.  You will walk by incredible homes with names like "The Breakers" and "Rose Cliff."  

Fun Fact: In 1975 the walk was designated as a National Recreation Trail ... the 65th in the nation and first in New England.

Helpful Hint: The walk is three and a half miles long, but much of it is rugged and not worth the length and difficulty.  Start at the Memorial Blvd entrance and walk to Belmont Beach, then turn around and head back.  Belmont beach is a great spot to take a break and watch the waves come in, and even surfers during the right season.
