Newport, Rhode Island is one of my favorite destinations, mainly for its abundance of beautiful Gilded Age mansions which were the summer "cottages" of many famous tycoons in the late 1800s. A full city guide will be available in the near future, but until then please enjoy A Glimpse of Newport by Julia Dzafic, longtime fan of the seaside city, author of the insanely popular blog, Lemon Stripes, and mom to Amalia, 1.
