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.

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
