Fodor's Review

Tennis fans and lovers of history, art, and architecture will enjoy a visiting the birthplace of American tournament tennis. Its museum contains clothing worn by the sport's biggest stars, video highlights of great matches, and the 1874 patent from Queen Victoria for the game of lawn tennis, among other memorabilia. The 6-acre site is home to the shingle-style Newport Casino, which opened in 1880 and was designed by architects McKim, Mead & White, a grandstand, and the recently restored Casino Theatre. The 13 grass tennis courts, one clay court, and an indoor tennis facility are open to the public for play. In early July, the hall of fame hosts the prestigious Hall of Fame Tennis Championships.
