The Gold Coast mansions from the late 1800s and early 1900s are gorgeous, and tell the story to begone time in American History when tycoons lived in lavish style. The houses are definitely a treat to see, and tell the story not only of those that lived there but also of the developing technology at that time.

We have come twice. Once in the summer(very busy and crowds). Our latest trip came in January no crowds but a little to cold to walk around. We will return again in either early spring or late fall to see how the environment is. Really enjoy RI.
