This combo is perfect for those looking to explore, learn a lot, and have fun doing it. And all you need is your phone! It works like this: As you walk the GPS-designated route, you'll be prompted with questions that encourage you to pay attention to your surroundings to find the answers. Take a closer look at that painting! Check the plaque on this statue! And wait, could that weirdly-shaped cliff over there be the “bunny” you’re supposed to find? Answer correctly and your virtual tour guide will fill you in on surprising bits of history, trivia, and tips for getting the most out of your trip. Transform your smartphone into your personal tour guide and scavenger hunt director with this tour of Newport Cliff Walk and return to the extravagance of the Gilded Age.
