Sporty couples will love this fun Newport date. Instead of heading to yet another game, visit the International Tennis Hall of Fame and Museum, located on the historic Bellevue Avenue.
The 20,000 square foot museum features interactive exhibits, videos and popular memorabilia of tennis champions from the 12th century through today. Established in 1954, the museum boasts 18 galleries alongside 13 manicured grass tennis courts.
Even if you’re not a huge tennis fan, you’ll appreciate the history and beauty of the six-acre Newport property, and you’ll definitely love how cheap your date will be. While a regular grounds pass (access to the entire site) costs $15, you’ll get it for $13 with your student ID. This pass gives you and your loved one access to the entire site, including the grass courts, tennis facility, museum and Newport Casino.
After a fun day of walking through the Hall of Fame, head down the street to the Newport waterfront near Thames Street for gorgeous views, cute shops and places to eat.
