Newport is a small city that's rich in history. You can explore the city's past and learn about its history at important sites such as the O'Dell House and Cocke County Courthouse. If you're a history buff, you should visit one of the oldest buildings in the area, Beechwood Hall, which is even on the National Register of Historic Places.
One of the many notable people born in Newport is Marshall Teague, best known for his role in Roadhouse with Patrick Swayze. He also appeared in the famous movies The Rock and Armageddon.
Your pup probably doesn't care about that, though! Un-fur-tunately, Newport doesn't have much to offer dog owners apart from a few lodging options and two animal hospitals. Pet-friendly accommodations in Newport include Quality Inn, Best Western Newport Inn, Motel 6 Newport, Comfort Inn Newport, and more! Make sure to check the pet policies of each hotel when booking your room.
If you want to take your dog on a dinner date, you'll have to travel a short distance to Gatlinburg or Morristown. Or, paw on over to Kodak, where you can take your pup to the Great Smokies Flea Market. Leashed dogs are allowed to roam around the outdoor areas, and are also welcome inside as long as they're in a stroller. (Fido is your fur baby, after all!)
