What's the walking like around the Newport area - especially in and amongst the Mansions? Are the sidewalks pretty level and smooth or older brick that you need to constantly watch for dips and large bumps? And are there benches around for sitting to rest? I have issues walking on uneven ground and for long distances (couple miles at a time) but generally find a wheelchair to be more hassle than it's worth. Do not need handicapped accessible accommodations, stairs are ok if I can go somewhat slowly (I stay at the back of the pack to now slow others). Trying to assess how best to tour Newport
Thanks for your help!
