One attraction that is rarely visited by our Newport Bed and Breakfast Guests is the Newport Rhode Island Tennis Hall of Fame. Only a five minute walk from our Rhode Island Inn, the Tennis Hall of Fame is a five star establishment with innovative and informative displays, beautiful grounds, and stunning architecture.
Many famous professional tennis players have made their way to the Tennis Hall of Fame for induction ceremonies and annual tournaments. Andre Agassi, Steffi Graf, Pete Sampras, and John McEnroe to name a few. Throughout the year some of our Newport Inn Guests visit to attend one of the many tournaments held on the only grass court facility in the United States but more than a few end up spontaneously going to the Hall of Fame. All return to our Rhode Island Inn with nothing but good to say about the facilities and the staff at the Hall of Fame. Perhaps the most infamous event held at the Tennis Hall of Fame, besides the Campbell’s Tennis Tournament, is the opening act performance for the Newport Jazz Festival Weekend. Held on the Friday night of the Jazz Festival Weekend, the concert is an intimate experience in an historic setting. So, be sure to visit the Newport Tennis Hall of Fame during your visit to Rhode Island and our Newport Bed and Breakfast.
