“While touring the mansion brings me back to middle school field trips, it’s still one of my favorite “touristy” things to do. I’d recommend your kids be a little older (8-10 depending), so you can really enjoy these “summer cottages” as they were formally known by the families who owned them. We love The Breakers and Marble House the best. ”

“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.”

“It’s usually busy, but it’s great for families (pretty noisy and offers great variety for young and old alike). I love the location because it starts you off at the top of famous Thames St., and when you roll out after your meal, you can start walking and enjoying all that Thames has to offer.”
