Interesting area....cute shops and restaurants among fishermen, businesses and a harbor. Visited the Maritime museum and saw some great old photos and pretty view of the harbor from the 2nd floor.

It is a nice area to walk around in if you enjoy a working harbor. It was great to see the fishing boats come in and all of the people fishing on the bayfront.

A great place to walk, eat, shop or just look at the fishing boats. You can even watch people catching crabs from the docks using net-cages and small chicken drumsticks.

An incongruous mix of fish and shellfish viscera permeating your nostrils, scenic beauty, and spectacular seafood restaurants makes this a fun and funky experience. You may have to plug your nose occasionally but it's well worth it.

This is one of our favorite places on the coast. We love seeing all the ships coming in and there is also a place to see them processing shrimp. Great for the whole family.

There are a lot of shops and restaurants in the are,shopping too. My wife uses a wheelchair and we went from one end to the other with no problem. Most places open at 10 but a few open at 9.

Worth the 60 minute stroll. A few trashy tourist haunts but also a real industrial fishing and processing area. Not real scenic (except for the bridge) but at least authentic.

There are a lt of "gift shops" along the bayfront, but it is also a working fishing village with great restaurants

We loved our visit to Newport but this was disappointing. Just a few souvenir shops and restaurants that were closed by 7pm. Very strong fish smell. I would pass, there's so much more to do and see in the area.

This is a very popular tourist attraction and parking is really at a premium. I wouldn't recommend taking bicycles to the area as drivers have too many blind spots. Nice shops, some not so much. Mo's is right in the heart of the Bay and very busy.
