This is usually everyone's favorite. The Breakers was the summer house of the Cornelius Vanderbilt II (NY Central Railroad President). The house sits right on the water and has breathtaking views. There are seventy rooms at the Breakers and each one has it's own charm and beauty. My favorite areas are the Great hall, Morning Room and terraces. The marble and guilded wood is incredible to see.

I have been here the morning after Christmas to see the poinsettia tree. Have also seen it a couple years later in mid December so anytime in the Christmas season should work.

I do enjoy going back time and time again.

**During the Holiday Season they allow you to photopgraph the Christmas Tree in the main hall only. No other pictures are allowed.**
