Bellevue Avenue in Newport, Rhode Island presents a long array of jawdropping mansions. Worth the drive, but be sure to go visit at least one.

This is a wonderful road to drive on to gaze at all the beautiful mansions and site see. Busy road and sometimes difficult to drive slowly if cars are impatiently behind you but definitely a must see.
