If you are visiting Newport then Bellevue Avenue is a must see. We walked down most of the length of it. It starts with some shops, then becomes a display of opulent private homes. A very interesting display of architecture from the 19th century. Early on summer cottages were built here, but they gradually became large mansions as the wealthy American families started building homes here.

Bellevue Ave. in Newport RI is a true Gem. With many shops with a large assortment of Items for sale From Clothing to Toys and just so much more. Tennis Hall of Fame,where you can play tennis on clay courts. Check with the office of course.
Nice food stores and great restaurants are also here. Near a lot of the great homes you may want to visit from the Gilded Age. A nice place to walk with the family with parking on the street. Go further down the street and you will find outstanding shops that have great items you will not find anywhere else in the area. Most people just stop at the Main road. Keep going or you will miss a lot. The buildings in this area are truly old but in great condition. Private homes.

It starts as a main street with some shops and restaurants and then turns into a street with some of the nicest mansions in Newport. Definitely worth seeing the start and end of the avenue.

Drove this as part of the Ocean Scenic Drive. I opted to drive it for time purposes but I wouldn't have minded walking through instead and appreciating the architecture and landscapes.

Take time to walk the avenue and gaze at the lovely estates -- in addition to the public homes, there still are some amazing, private estates, as well as a number of "cottages" that now are repurposed to house charitable foundations, etc.

Not only is it amazing to cruise past so many spectacular homes, but it's mind-boggling to realize so many have endured and are still impeccably maintained.

A must see! We were on our Trolley tour and saw all of Bellevue Avenue. Oh the beauty and the mansions. We did the Breakers. A must see, next time we have to get to the Marble house and the Elms. Such a beautiful drive.
