Visit the Newport mansions this Christmas

Dining tables are set with period silver and china and mannequins dressed in authentic costumes complete the elegant setting. All three houses are open daily for tours through Jan. 1.
On Saturday, Dec. 16, the Marble House and the Elms can be seen in the evening as a twofor one package. The self guided tours run from 6 to 9 p.m. and will be accompanied by music.
