Newport on the Levee is the most popular attraction in Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky supported by research performed in 2006 by Northern Kentucky University's marketing department. The Levee was also voted by Zagat as the #1 Shopping/Mall Attraction for Families in the United States in May 2004. Located just across the river from Cincinnati's dramatic skyline view, the Levee features a year-round schedule of festivals, special events, live bands and a great selection of restaurant offerings.

I hate to sound too much like the previous reviewer (James A from Toronto) but he is absolutely bang on about how visitors need to find the good aspects of developments like the Levee. Our experiences are mostly limited to using it as a 'staging area' before walking across the Purple People Bridge when attending ball games on the Ohio... More

I think that something this size has to have good stuff in there somewhere and if you look hard enough you'll see the Newport Aquarium and the Barnes & Noble in there... very large attractions actually. There are a bunch of activities for kids which might be fun like a bunji-thingy and a waterball thingy also...I have no interest in... More

That was the first thing the girls had seen. The price was $8. for 4 to 5 minutes, but that was so much fun for them. A lot of shops and places to eat. Something for everyone, loved that there was Barnes & Noble also. Great little place to spend the day.

A nice time for the entire family. Shopping, food, movies, the best video arcade anywhere with food and beverage, live music, easy to park and just stroll about.

Many of the shops were closed early, the comedy club didn't have anything going on during a weeknight. BUT...... the levee stairway gives an area for amazing views of the cincy skyline and sunset, places like Tom + Chee and cold stone creamery are a boost, the sports stop is a great place for aports gear from many teams, even...

Loved the place. Went to Goettafest there and it was great! Beautiful view of Cincinnati! The restaurants were really nice, except Brothers. Great theater, shops, aquarium, Ride the ducks, etc. and safe, clean and friendly place!

Great strolling along the Ohio River with fantastic views of Cincinatti....especially at night. A large array of night life. Also has the Newport Aquarium and the HofBrauHaus. My wife and I drive 2.5 hours on a regular basis for the weekend get-away.

Newport on the Levee has a great layout with fantastic views of downtown Cincinnati and the Ohio river. There are both indoor and outdoor stores, making it a great place to walk around. Unfortunately, there wasn't anything there that drew me in enough to spend any money, which was a disappointment. There are plenty of activities for children.

The only true reason we took my children up to Newport was to take them to the aquarium but when I heard that there was supposed to be shops and entertainment surrounding it I got excited. Honestly though there really isn't much that a family with small children can do. There were things my 6 year could do but my... More
