Announcing a new Meetup for The Ethnic Dining Enthusiasts Meetup Group!
What: Experience the Magic of Christmas at the Newport Mansions!
When: December 19,[masked]:00 PM
Newport, RI 02840
Music, tours, and spectacular decorations highlight the celebration of Christmas at the Newport Mansions. We invite you to make holiday memories with us by visiting The Breakers, The Elms and Marble House, all decked out for the holidays.
Thousands of poinsettia plants, spectacular evergreens, trees, wreaths and fresh flowers and 19th century style ornaments turn the houses and their grounds into a Yuletide wonderland. Dining tables set with period silver and china and mannequins dressed in authentic costumes complete the elegant setting.
We will be visiting, by bus, the fabulous homes of the once elite in Newport. The homes are by far , a sight to behold and give a glimpse to a bygone era. Our coach will depart at 8:00 am and we will arrive in Newport at approximately 10:30. We will view one mansion and break for lunch from 12 noon to 1:30pm. We will then view the remaining 2 mansions...until 5 pm. We'll break for dinner, which I am arranging thru a local restaurant in the area for around 6 pm. Of course, you are free to do your own thing...shop, dinner on your own, but if you would like to join us for dinner... feel free. we will depart for home at approximately 8 pm.
See all three houses and save. Winter Passport ticket (daytime admission to all three) is $28 for adults, $9 for children 6-17. The bus is $45.00 and we will make pickups in Hartford, Southington and a third further down the line., if necessary. All pickup locations TBD.
So join us for this most festive occasion and daytrip. Enjoy the beauty while sharing the warmth of the season with good friends!
