Fodor's Review

Tennis fans and lovers of history, art, and architecture will enjoy a visiting the birthplace of American tournament tennis. The renovated museum contains interactive exhibits, a holographic theater that simulates being in a room with Roger Federer, displays of clothing worn by the sport's biggest stars, video highlights of great matches, and memorabilia that includes the 1874 patent from England's Queen Victoria for the game of lawn tennis. The 6-acre site is home to a grandstand, the shingle-style Newport Casino, which opened in 1880 and was designed by architects McKim, Mead & White, 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.
