Plenty of nearby affordable parking! Many food venues available! Not only home to the Newport Aquarium, but a Barnes and Noble, AMC Theater, a bowling alley and a comedy club are also in the complex! The interior has also been referred to as a "mall" - but there aren't many store fronts that are open.

Newport is a fascinating city in Kentucky, separated from Cincinnati by the mighty Ohio River. It is culturally diverse, offering both historical preservation and fresh, innovative attractions for visitors and locals alike. With world class hotels right on the waterfront, riverboat cruises, great walking tours, and a pedestrian bridge that takes its travelers right into the heart of downtown Cincinnati...... More

Went here twice over the weekend whenin town for a wedding. It was worth it since our hotel was close and we had time between wedding events but otherwise it is just all chain restaurants. Did enjoy the beautiful flowers planted all around and the water views. Parking cost money but wasnt super expensive. The Barnes N Noble had great... More

It is nice that it... More

When I'm in a new place I love to go to the tourist traps. Great area to hang out and enjoy the river. Plenty to do for all ages. I was there in the day so I do t know about night time. Shopping although limited. Mostly restaurants, movie theater, ice cream, etc worth a look especially if your hungry.

While visiting Cincinnati/Covington, we had decided to go to the Levee a day earlier than planned. We decided to stop for lunch at Tom + Chee and while we were waiting for our food, I had a security guard running up to me yelling, "Ma'am what are you doing". I shockingly replied just taking a picture. She told me I... More
