Nice walk along Thames Street.

You have to walk Thames Street when you visit Newport. The Red Parrot is a good place to have a quick lunch. There are so many shops there so give yourself plenty of time.

That's street has come a long way from its origins. Trendy shops much safer than the old days! Enjoy a stroll.

Thames Street is a busy area of Newport. There are restaurants and plenty of shops. It has a variety of restaurants from pubs to fine dining. There is something for everyone on Thames Street. It is also close to the wharfs.

Packed with tourists and door to door shirt shops. Crowded, noisy, dirty. Like many east coast oceanside spots this is the street to avoid but there are wonderful shops, houses, museums just off Thames that many never explore.

Right near the water, lots of the usual tourist shops, but also many quirky little places! Lots of restaurants - you'll find what you want to eat for sure. The restaurants are very open to the outside, and that made for a wonderful breeze. There's a lot of traffic a night, so be careful!

Very interesting street to browse through shops and get a taste of the area culture. There were unique items of interest, but the pricing was a little steep. A good way to spend a some time.
