Go on a guided walking tour of Redwood Library and Athenaeum, America's oldest lending library, built in 1747. Rough Point earned its colorful name as Doris Duke's private retreat, surrounded by rocky shoreline. Its phenomenal collection of European art is open to the public. Enjoy the "living history" tour of Astors' Beechwood mansion, complete with actors portraying servants and society guests, and don't miss The Breakers — the grandest of Newport's summer "cottages." Tennis fans will be inspired at the International Tennis Hall of Fame and nautical enthusiasts will love the Museum of Yachting.
