Cliff walk is a donot miss sight. The path is clean and manicured. The sun was shining and the wind was calm. A beautiful Valentine stroll. Thank you!

Cliff walk is a very nice, well kept scenic walk along the water behind the mansions. Some terrain is difficult as you are walking on large rocks proper shoes are required for safety.

It's a beautiful way to see Newport but it is really cold in December. Also, the restrooms are closed in the winter.
