Captain Vic scouts the shore: Part 1

Newport's Bellevue Avenue:
great to walk, run or bike ...
see the famous mansions

      Newport's Bellevue Avenue was the backbone of Newport's Golden Age. Here the Vanderbilts and the top 400 of United States society and wealth congregated during the summers during the last 150 years or so.

      This page is a photo documentary of what Bellevue Avenue looks like today. The Avenue is about 2.4 miles and is the longest and widest street in Newport. Originally a dirt road, it currently is concrete and in reasonably good repair. The sidewalks are wide and generally provide good shade cover during the hot sunny days.


      Here is a simple guide to distances south from the northern start of the Avenue:
to Viking Tower: 0.15 mile
to Newport Art Museum: 0.15 mile
to Tennis Hall of Fame: 0.25 mile
to Kingscote: 0.4 mile
to Isaac Bell House: 0.6 mile
to the Elms: 0.7 mile
to Chateau Sur Mer: 1.2 miles
to Rosecliff: 1.5 miles
to the Breakers: 1.7 miles (but off Bellevue Ave. itself)
to Beechwood: 1.7 miles
to Marble House: 1.75 miles
to Belcourt Castle: 2.1 miles
to Rejects Beach where Cliff Walk ends: 2.4 miles
