Newport Cliff Walk Photos

And a couple of videos too

Here are some more Newport Cliff Walk photos for you to enjoy, until you get a chance to visit Newport yourself.

No matter what time of year you come here, this is always one of the most beautiful spots in the city. So what are you waiting for?

These pictures and videos were taken in early October. The Fall season is an ideal time to visit because the crowds have dissipated, and it's obviously not as hot. You get to enjoy the cool breezes, and you won't feel rushed or crowded as you might on a busy summer weekend.

Starting point on Memorial Boulevard - overlooking 1st Beach

Overlooking 1st Beach and the Atlantic Beach Club

Ochre Court - just past the 40 Steps on the right. You may recognize this as the Swiss chalet from the movie True Lies, starring Arnold Schwarzenneger.

The interior shots (including the Tango scene) were shot at Rosecliff, a little further south on historic Bellevue Avenue.

There are many great things to see on this historic walking trail. Breathtaking views, opulent mansions and some of the most amazing real estate in the nation are found here.

This is definitely one of the must-see Newport RI attractions.
