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 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.

The International Tennis Hall of Fame shares the narrative of tennis history from its origins through present day.”
