“The International Tennis Hall of Fame is set in The Newport Casino, a National Historic Landmark that first opened in 1880 as a social club for Newport’s summer elite. Designed by McKim, Mead & White, a premier architectural firm of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, this was one of the firm’s earliest projects. In 1881, the first U.S. National Men’s Singles Championship was contested at the Casino, and Dick Sears garnered the first of seven consecutive titles before retiring undefeated in 1887. The International Tennis Hall of Fame shares the narrative of tennis history from its origins through present day.”

Historic Site
“The Elms is a short block away and has one of the most enlightening tours because you can see how the 'help' lived in contrast to the 'family' and guests. It can be nice to stroll through their gardens on the way to/from the Cliff Walk. The servants quarters tour is really enlightening, they got the unflattering views of the statuary along the top of the mansion which reinforced their station in their lives as servants and caretakers.”

Synagogue
“Dedicated in 1763, the building was designated a National Historic Site in 1946. The building was spared from being torn down and used as firewood during the British occupation of Newport, because it was used as a hospital for Brittish troops. Currently, it’s the oldest surviving synagogue in the US, and still operates as an active place of worship. In 1790, George Washington defended religious freedom in a letter "To the Hebrew Congregation in Newport," stating that the new nation would give "to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance." Tours include a half hour seated presentation in Touro Synagogue and two floors of exhibits in the Loeb Visitors Center at 52 Spring St.”

“Doris Duke's Mansion! A must see on a rainy day. Not related and associated or to be confused with the Preservation Society of Newport however, totally worth walking through her home and grounds of the sole American heiress, socialite, horticulturalist, art collector, and philanthropist. The only daughter of a wealthy tobacco tycoon, Dorris Duke was amazing in her philanthropic efforts to restore and revitalize the famous Point Section of Newport, RI. She was a wonderful lady.”
