In Newport we got a taste of what a life without money concerns was like when we toured two homes belonging to the Vanderbilt family. I'd have to say that to me it was almost obscene the opulence and extravagance of these holiday homes of the rich and famous. While a house built of marble both inside and out is spectacular, do you really need it especially when you build it just to have a nicer house than your neighbour - I don't think so, but then I'm not a Vanderbilt. The estates were beautifully maintained with spectacular views over the ocean and were really lovely.
Lifestyles of the rich and famous. Absolutely beautiful estates.
