Just another struggling outdoor mall with maybe 4 stores. Food options are limited to overpriced chains and movie theater is filthy.

Only two magic theaters east of the Mississippi and there's one here at Newport on the Levy. Up close and personal magic acts. Local and internationally known magicians. Great family fun, .

We happened on this place one afternoon here on an impromptu visit. We had escaped away for a weekend getaway and went for a drive to see what we could see across the river from Cincinnati. When we found this inviting place we found a place to park and went into it. We walked through the shops, took in a... More

We went there for a particular restaurant. Otherwise, I would have no desire to be there. The place is nothing special other than it brings together restaurants and the aquarium.

We were in town for a day and headed down here for something to do before catching a Reds game later that night. We had some fish for lunch at Mitchell's Fish Market (great view), bought some fudge and a gigantic gummy bear at Sweet Dreams Candy Co., and visited the Newport Aquarium. If you live more than 50 miles... More

I used to live here and I def wouldnt come here to shop. However if youre killing time before the game or wanting to get some food then its a nice stop. Great views. As a hint park under the bridge next to aquarium, cheapest parking in town (used to work at NAQ).

This was the best part of our trip! So many cute shops and they even had a small fun park area where my kids were strapped into harnesses and let fly on a trampoline. The lady was fantastic and gave us a great deal so all 3 of my kids could enoy!

Spent a fall w/e in Newport. our hotel was convenient to the levee area. specialty shop mall, lots of restaurants + the whole area is clean, feels safe and is A-OK! many of the restaurants, sports bars, offer outdoor seating to enjoy a view of the Ohio River and Cincy skyline. not enough attractions to merit more than an afternoon...

We took a nice evening walk on the Levee. The skyline to Cincy is always very beautiful to take pictures of and share. People are friendly and the trolley rides are only $1!

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.
