Play Like A Professional Player At the Tennis Hall Of Fame

Just imagine you get to stand on the field where your country’s player once played and won the championship. How does that sound to you?

It sounds pretty cool, right?

In fact, too many, it just sounds like a straight-up movie plot but trust me when I say this, you can have that wild (but if you are a local in Newport, then not-so-wild) dream of yours come true.

How? Well, let me introduce you to the International Tennis Hall of Fame.

Built in the mid-1800s, the once prestigious 13,000 square feet place was a club-only court, but today the public has access to go there, play around or just have a self-tour.

So, if you love tennis and history then let me know that there is also a museum in this place where you can see the history of the sport, events, and anything!

There are three distinct periods in the history of tennis; The Birth of Tennis (1874 – 1918), The Popular Game (1918 – 1968); and The Open Era (1968 – Present).

And that does not end here!

Visitors can participate in a tricky yet exciting game of tennis where they will ‘’serve’’ the correct answer and ask questions to their opponent from the other side of the touchscreen table.

2) Visit The Blue Garden

In 1913, Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. designed the Blue Garden on Beacon Hill for  Arthur Curtiss James’s estate.

Visit The Blue Garden

Arthur Curtiss James, one of the least known millionaires in America, had spent most of his youth sailing, and then he hired Frederick Law to design a monochromatic color palette of blue.

Flowers in shades of sapphire, periwinkle, purple, lavender, grey, and white reflected the sky and the surrounding ocean.

By the time of Arthur C. James’s death, the garden was left unattended and had lost its grace but in 1967, when a fire hit the mansion of Arthur, not only was the whole place destroyed, but the garden was unrecognizable at that point.

But in 2012, the generosity of Dorrance H. Hamilton,  resident, philanthropist, and garden enthusiast, restored its original glory—using original plans, drawings, and some old photographs.

In addition to being a classic example of American landscape art, the Blue Garden stands as a monument to the preservation of history.

Reasons To Go

For all garden enthusiasts, this is a place for you to admire a paradise in Newport! You get to experience the marvelous architecture and the perfect planning of the secret garden.

And even if you aren’t familiar with gardening or architecture, that should not stop you from visiting this place. You will be amazed at the planning and structure and get dissolved in the fresh air and fragrance around you!

Also, if you are a social media influencer, you could not get a better place than this!

Take A Tour Of Fort Adams

You may be disappointed with the fact that the tour is 90-minute (but honestly, even if it were longer, you wouldn’t get enough of this place), but you still have the option to roam around the surroundings to see more of this place.

Before entering the Fort, you must go to the building where you can get the tickets, some snacks, and drinks to munch along with, and souvenirs.

Once you enter the fort, you will find small scattered pieces of information, along with a small interior section with some museum-style displays and information panels.

Because with a guided tour, you get all of the details you might be missing out on. In the guided tour, you also get access to additional locations which you might not know about, like the tunnels!

Symbolizing the Vanderbilt family’s relative financial and social dominance at the turn of the century, The Breakers is the largest of Newport’s summer cottages.

To date, the mansion is not new to visitors coming daily to view its extraordinary architecture and roam over 50 rooms of this place! It has been recorded that this place greets more than 300,000 visitors annually!

And it has also been awarded the status of a National Historic Landmark.

Tours are available daily to the public and include access to most of the first floor. The great hall, dining room, music room, and kitchen are some of the must-sees of this place.

Occasionally, there are special tours available. Visitors can access previously closed-off areas through this tour, including the underground tunnel and basement.

5) Marble House, Another Extraordinary Mansion of The Prominent Vanderbilt For You To Discover

There is no doubt that the Marble House is a truly magnificent and well-developed Beaux Arts-style mansion in Newport, Rhode Island, and is the best place to visit in Newport.

Marble House, Another Extraordinary Mansion of The Prominent Vanderbilt For You To Discover

Built-in between 1888-1892, the marble house was designed by one of the renowned architects, Richard Morris Hunt.

The Marble House originally served as the summer cottage for Sir William Kissam Vanderbilt, an American businessman, philanthropist, and a member of the well-known Vanderbilt Family,  and his wife, Miss Alva Vanderbilt.

Due to its rich heritage, great furnishings, and exquisite architectural features, the ‘’cottage’’ is listed on the National Register Of Historic Places.

At present, The Marble House is now a historic house museum run which is operated and maintained by the Newport Preservation Society.

Reasons To Go

Why would you miss the chance to go to the Marble house? The place is decorated with over 500,000 cubic feet of marble, and there is nothing in this house that will keep your mouth from hitting the floor!

In addition to the house’s marble features, the house’s exterior facade and extravagant staircases, which are made of yellow Siena marble, are something that will keep you captive.

And did I mention that in the past many shows and events were shot here,  including Victoria’s Secret’s holiday commercial in 2012?

6) Cliff Walk

Cliff walk is one of the most beautiful places you can go for a jog or hiking, and it is worth every picture and video you plan on taking here.

Cliff Walk

If I am being honest, you can even make your friends jealous of such a beautiful place, and I don’t blame them for not!

On one side, you get a view of some of the Gilded Age Mansions and some new modern residences; on the other, you get a view of the ocean.

If you plan on going for a run, then just be aware that some of it is an easy walk on level ground, but some are just figuring out the best path along the uneven rocks and terrain. There are also few tunnels and steps along the way.

Regardless, this is still a fun path to take but just make sure you go to the washroom first and bring your water bottle cause you will be needing that a lot!

Reasons To Go

Going to the cliff walk is worth the experience, and just reaching there before sunrise just gives you an experience you might have been missing your whole life.

The fresh air, boats, and yachts sailing by, and mansions view is just a view that you might have imprinted on your mind.

Plus, this might be a push to start getting fit.

The White Horse Tavern is one of America’s Oldest Restaurants, and it is also a National Historic Landmark. The White Horse aspires to create a fresh, trendy culinary experience in a historic tavern atmosphere.

White Horse Tavern, The Oldest Place In The World To Dine

For generations, the White Horse has served their delicious and fresh fish, clams, and lobsters coming from Narragansett Bay along with just-picked produce from local Rhode Island farms.

Quite interesting to point out, but this place is older than the country!

Although there are rumors that the once-pirate (YES PIRATES!) owned restaurant is haunted. But still, it has not stopped customers from rushing into this place for their delicious and mouth-watering food!

So, apart from being a historic landmark and also a pirate-owned restaurant ( honestly, this has already made me excited!), they serve food that has ghosts clinging along the place. Quite literally!

With an experience of more than four centuries, this has to be on your bucket list!

Head To Clarke Cooke House For A Snowball From Hell

YOU ARE GOING CLARKE COOKE FOR A SNOWBALL FROM HELL. Let me get this straight, it is not literally from hell, but it can send you to one (or heaven, depending on your deed).

So what is this, you are wondering?

12) Touro Synagogue

If you love American History, then you might be amazed at the Touro Synagogue and the history and significant role it plays in the city.

Touro Synagogue

Touro Synagogue is one of the oldest synagogues built in the United States of America, but it’s more than just that. The synagogue shows the history of America and the religious freedom given here.

It was built by immigrants from various places, including Spain and the Portuguese, to settle in Newport. The synagogue was built in 1763 and had been an important place of worship for the Jews around the area.

However, when the revolutionary war broke out, many Jews were worried about the synagogue. So, a conclusion came out, and caretakers transferred the deed to the New York congregation for safekeeping.

Now, the congregation owns Touro. Surely, this is one of the places you can’t miss out on!

Reasons To Go

This is a Must See for all the visitors planning on going to Newport. The Touro Synagogue is rich in history and dates more than a hundred years back.

As the oldest synagogue in America, the story of Touro shows the importance of freedom of religion in the United States and the city’s unity.

Apart from that, the tour guides are just quite knowledgeable. Although the tour lasts for roughly around 40 minutes, and in those forty minutes, you learn more than you can ever know.

The tour guides are friendly and always welcome to answer any questions coming from the visitors.

Also, don’t miss out on the chance to check nearby shops. You will get some great souvenirs for your loved ones and yourself as well, and at a reasonable price.

Mamma Luisa Restaurant

Pretty great, right? And if this makes you excited, then you are the perfect person to eat at Mamma Luisa Restaurant! And even if you are from Italy, I can promise you that this place has the best Italian food you will ever try.

14) Rough Point Museum

If you keep thinking about a place and expect to go there again to try something new, then $20 is just too cheap for an experience like this.

Rough Point Museum

The Rough Point Museum is so much more than a museum.

If you take the time to ask questions about the people who have lived there, you will learn so much from them. You will find a deeper meaning as to why this mansion is a home.

The tour guide can keep up with all your questions and share personal and interesting stories about the mansion and the Duke herself. You might learn a little more than you expected from this place.

While the mansion is considerably large, there is a personal touch to some of the rooms.

On the second floor is an exhibit where you can learn about Doris Duke’s lifestyle, including her clothing. It is safe to say that the women had rich taste and were quite graceful.

An elevator on the second floor and a lift on the third floor make the museum fully accessible

Don’t forget to check out the gardens at the museum. They host special events that are the most exciting part of the mansion, don’t miss your chance at it!

Reasons To Go

Doris Duke was a woman of power and great wealth, although her house may not seem the largest compared to the other mansions.

Maybe the mansion doesn’t have the most marble, despite the owner being the richest woman.

But regardless of the story, Doris Duke has always fascinated people worldwide, which is why her house, the story told by the staff members, makes her alive in a unique way. 

So, don’t miss out on a chance to know the details about the most controversial woman! You will be amazed by many things the media might have hidden up to now.

15) Check Out The Old Stone Mill in Touro Park

An interesting fact about the Old Stone Mill is that no one knows anything about it, hence the obvious name ‘’old stone’’. Some hypotheses suggest that it may be from space, others suggest Viking, but no one has a clue!

Check Out The Old Stone Mill in Touro Park

But whatever the origin of the Old Stone, it is still a nice attraction for the tourist to see. It is not far from Thames Street, so if you wish to take a break from the shopping spree or just want a place to sit and observe this thing, then the address is below!

You know what to do after this (HINT: GO TO IT)

Reasons To Go

Vikings or others may have built it, but it is likely to be a 1600s grist mill. At least it’s a beautiful structure in Touro Park that you can not miss out on.

So, whether you want to take pictures or just sit back, the small park offers you that while you watch little kids play around.

If you are a solo traveler, I hope you find someone interesting at Touro Park.

17) Gooseberry Beach, A Place To Relax

Gooseberry Beach is probably a hidden gem in Newport (not so hidden anymore?) that you must check out, especially if you love going to the beaches!

Gooseberry Beach, A Place To Relax

One of the best things about this beach is that even though it is a little smaller than the other beaches in Newport, no doubt it is no lesser than those beaches!

It’s almost like this place is never crowded, you can go there anytime (it is open from 11 am to 5 pm) and you will be surprised how it’s never crowded.

There are just enough people not to feel suffocated and just enough not to feel isolated.

If you are bringing a car, then there will be a $20 fee for it, but apart from that, it is completely open to the public.

Reasons To Go

So, why do people go to the beach?

There are many reasons, but the most common one is to sit back and relax while the heart calms the sound of the waves. So, for a relaxing day, why not head to Gooseberry beach?

Not only is the beach a little underrated (which is the best part!), but it is quite well maintained, with lifeguards patrolling the beach just to ensure everything is alright.

There is a cute little place at the beach where you can grab a little bit or just have a great lunch at a reasonable price.

And that is not it; you have access to nearby beaches if you are a little bored of this one (which is highly unlikely!) and did I mention the activities you can do?

If not, one mall hint should be driving you crazy for all the activities you can’t miss out on!

So, if you are looking for a well-maintained, monitored beach for you to relax and kids to play around, then Gooseberry is the one for you!

18) Audrain Automobile Museum

If you are a car enthusiast, you might just go crazy for the place I am about to reveal. Audrain Automobile Museum is not your regular museum but one of the most remarkable museums.

Audrain Automobile Museum

 It takes pride in displaying more than 200 automobiles dating from 1899 to the modern day. You will find some of the oldest models, most of which would be the rarest you have ever heard or seen.

Just to pop the bubble, not all 200 automobiles are showcased at once; rather, they’re presented based on the exhibition thesis, with just a limited number of cars.

So, whenever you decide to step into the museum, get surprised by the new monthly themes, with some exciting models to fuel your desires.

Reasons To Go

The museum may look a little small, with only 15 to 20 cars for display, but if you know about cars, you might spend more than in this museum. Get fascinated by some of the rarest and oldest models no one has ever heard of!

And if you think this place might not be suitable for you just because you are not into cars. Then you might be wrong. Even just looking at and hearing some interesting stories related to the creation or owner of the cars will keep you engaged.

It’s a perfect place for everyone to learn something new and interesting.

So don’t forget to check this place out!

19) Curryland

Looking for a different cuisine to eat, or just craving something with all the rich flavors from South Asia? I think that was a little too specific.

Curryland

But anyway, which restaurant would deal with such crazy cravings? I have the perfect place for you, Curryland. Don’t let the name confuse you, because this place is a hidden gem for those looking for something different.

Also, if you are a Muslim, then this restaurant might be your go-to restaurant since it serves halal food! So, no more worrying and thinking twice about your first bite!

Reasons To Go

For all Indian-cuisine lovers, you don’t even have to read this part, but if you doubt it, trust me, this place is just as great but much more than the regular ones. *wink*

As for those who have not tried this cuisine yet, you are missing out on a whole subcontinent’s food, which is insane! It is time to get out of your comfort zone and try this food.

If you are unsure what to order, then don’t worry. We got you covered, their famous dish lentils, served with tortilla (be the appropriate term would be Roti), their delicious coconut curry is to die for, and lastly, their well looked crispy okras that you can either eat with rice or as popcorn!
