The Breakers really has to be seen to be believed. This home to the Vanderbilt family is nothing short of opulent. Guided tours allow you to walk through selected rooms and see just how comfortably the family lived. The overall experience really depends on who your guide is on the tour. I'm a professional historian, but our guide was dangerously close to sucking all the excitement out of the tour. It's not a cheap tour, but it's worth it!
