to 500 guests for dinners and receptions.
Also new are the Newport Beach House, a
multilevel venue with indoor and outdoor
deck spaces accommodating up to 600
guests, and the Audrain Automobile Museum, which hosts events among exhibitions
of some of the world’s rarest vehicles.
One of the city’s landmark venues, the
International Tennis Hall of Fame, recently
unveiled a major expansion and renovation
that included new interactive features for
its history galleries, additional retail space
and the acquisition of the nearby Canfield
House, an elegant banquet facility seating
up to 120 guests for catered functions.
Tennis and croquet matches on the Hall of
Fame’s historic grass courts are among the
many teambuilding options for groups.
Much like Providence, Newport is also a
place where groups will find plenty of fine-dining choices as well as culinary tours.
Among the latter are customized food tours
offered by Newport Hospitality, a local DMC.
“We combine a bit of Newport history
with a walking tour; people stop at four or
five different restaurants, meeting with the
chefs and going into the kitchens to sample
mussels cooked with wine or a lobster roll,”
When asked what he considers an essen-
tial Newport experience for visitors, Walsh
said it’s anything that takes in the area’s
“The Cliff Walk, Norman Bird Sanctuary
and Sachuest Point are the most beautiful
hiking trails you will find in New England
and are breathtaking in every month of the
year,” he said. “And, of course, Newport
Harbor. An opportunity to get out on the
water in any type of boat is a must-do for
visitors from late April through early November. And don’t forget your camera.”
