  7. Inspiration: Newport Rhode Island

    chic getaways for families in Newport Rhode IslandWe were inspired this week by Newport Rhode Island, a beautiful and elegant town replete with seaside mansions, museums, great restaurants, beaches and more.The "Must Do List" in Newport, includes Cliff Walk, where visitors can take a walking tour of the shoreline dotted by spectacular mansions, home long ago to the Vanderbilts and their ilk. If just seeing the outside is not enough, get a ticket to go inside and enjoy the opulent furnishings and lush settings- saddle up to a tour guide, as some of the stories are entertaining, especially for the kids, of well dressed dog companions, table manners and dining habits.Speaking of dining, when you're done drooling over these over-the-top pads, for a bite, head on over to The Clarke Cooke House on Bannister's Wharf, for some fresh fish and lively atmosphere. For an after dinner ice cream, Sprinkles is a good choice on Bowan's Wharf, where you can enjoy a casual cone while you check out the shops
