The gilded age is over, obviously, and we probably will never see such lavish indulgence on a large scale any time soon, but thankfully, we can still get that feeling back when we visit any of the mansions in Newport. They are lovingly preserved and restored, the tours are informative and interesting, and one can immerse himself/herself in the time when ingenuity and innovation and industry gave rise to infinite possibilities and prosperity. Lavish indulgence with reckless abandon may make us wince and cringe, but these monuments to another time also make our dreams awaken! You can't come to Rhode Island and not see the mansions!
