Newport is where you can discover the Gilded Age in all its historic glory. We selected the Rosecliff Mansion for the Rhode Island Trail because its interiors and exteriors were included in the 1974 film version of F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s The Great Gatsby.

Of all of the mansions in Newport, Rosecliff has the largest ballroom, which was used in the film. It also features the sweetest staircases you may ever see. The ballroom is similar to the one at The Breakers resort in Palm Beach, Florida.
