  • Address: Bellevue Ave
Traversing the center of Newport, Bellevue Avenue and its surrounding streets are home to some of the most exclusive properties in New England. The affluent area is mostly residential, and includes many of the Gilded Age summer “cottages” built by such iconic names as Vanderbilt and Astor. The homes were not just mansions; they were showcases for new and progressive architectural styles.

Along the mansion-lined avenue you can see the Isaac Bell House, The Elms, Marble House, and Kingscote. The Breakers, Newport’s signature mansion, is to the east on Ochre Point Avenue. Also here is the Newport Casino, home to the International Tennis Hall of Fame and the National Museum of American Illustration.

Practical Info

Bellevue Avenue begins where Touro and Kay streets merge, and runs directly south, terminating near Ocean Avenue. The northern end has a cluster of shops and restaurants, turning exclusively residential the farther south you drive.
