Off to Newport, Rhode Island

I'm taking a week's vacation to Newport, Rhode Island to relax, sightsee, and find some new architectural inspirations.  Newport was a summer retreat for the millionaires of the Gilded Age, and it features some of the gaudiest palaces built during that era.  I am also planning to see the Edward Hopper drawing exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, and take a day trip up Cape Cod to locate Hopper's summer house in Truro, Massachusetts.
