We will be staying in Newport. Is there an audio tour of the Elms available? If so, what does it cost, and where would I purchase it for my wife and I? Thanks!

It depends on you,if you want do it on your own through the audio aid...you can linger on taking the history slowly....anything between and hour or two...all depends on yr own interest.
