Mother Daughter Graduation trip in December

My daughter, 22, and I will be visiting Boston and Newport the week on December 8-14. We plan to spend two full days in Boston then drive down to Newport December 11-14. We love music, beautiful scenery/nature and are foodies. Our questions for TA, we need suggestions for the best B&B regarding the views and grounds (winter so Im not expecting much in the gardens). We don't have to stay in Newport directly, as we will have a car. While in Newport we want to walk the cliffside walk, find some good live music, eat memorable food and tour some of the mansions. Any advice on must see's and must do's are so very welcome.

Thank you

Early December the grounds in Newport can still be quite nice. There may be a few B&B's right at the harbor in addition to hotels, or in the beautiful surrounding neighborhoods. You could also stay in Middletown for some views of Easton's Beach and ocean.

Newport is a fun city, although not really known for it's music in the off season. But there are plenty of venues with some sort of live music. Newportthisweek.com would have area listings.

The mansions will be decorated for Christmas. There are only a few open in the winter -- maybe 5. Check out the website above.
