I loved walking here it made me wanting to live there, being part of it. Love the combination of Old and Modern of this side of Newport. It is crowded in a weekend day, but it's worth the workout. Finding parking would be a hassle

You can't go to Newport without a walk down Thames street--all the nightlife and restaurants, the beauty of the boats and the harbor, it's a must if you get to Newport.

Very pleasant place to walk in the evening grab a beer or a meal and watch the world go by. Fair bit of choice of restaurants that should satisfy most people's preferences

Thames Street has all the usual tourist stuff, restaurants, shops, and of course the feel of being in a harbor town. I have not found a great restaurant there, but I have only been in a few. Fun to take a stroll.

If you can find what you like here not sure you'll ever find it. People watching, pub, food, shopping... it has it all.

Pretty repetetive stores, would be nice to find some nice boutiques like on Bellevue avenue As for restaurants I would recommend, hard to find a parking for free, try the side streets...

This is the main walking area for most people. Crowded as can be but so what. Great window shopping, everything from t shirts to an antiques mall to ice cream shops. Just pure fun.

Been wandering down this street for all of the 25 years annually stay in Newport for a week, and always enjoy trying new eating places, and browsing in the shops for unique and fun gifts and souvenirs for family members, young and older. Always changing and interesting people watching street too!
