Newport on the Levee is the most popular attraction in Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky supported by research performed in 2006 by Northern Kentucky University's marketing department. The Levee was also voted by Zagat as the #1 Shopping/Mall Attraction for Families in the United States in May 2004. Located just across the river from Cincinnati's dramatic skyline view, the Levee features a year-round schedule of festivals, special events, live bands and a great selection of restaurant offerings.

This is a terrific place to spend a day. The selection of restaurants, the Aquarium, the AMC movies, GameWorks, Shops, Ice Cream,Book Store, Bowling, and street performers all provide for a means to craft your day. Also, the views of downtown are the best in the City. be sure to check their website of facebook for special events as well.... More

We visited on a Saturday. They had kids activities in the main area as well as the shops and restaurants. It seems like the mall has lost a lot of shops but they made up for it with the extras. We also enjoyed a few games of bowling at Axis Bowling. Hopefully they keep adding and not losing shops.

My family enjoy all the sites and sounds of Levee on Saturday. I loved the food options for the little ones and candy shop too. I say go out and travel to this great area.

We actually just stumbled on the spot while driving away from Cincinnati. Once we got here, we quit enjoyed all of the shops and the liveliness that was around at night. There were indoor shops as well as some outdoor vendors. We also enjoyed the live music. We drive up by I-75 a lot and would certainly stop by the... More

Newport on the Levee is always fun. There is plenty to do, parking is plentiful, good food is on every corner and the entertainment is never ending! We will continue to visit the levee time and time again.

There shops and restaurants here that run along the river. You can often find a festival going on. The aquarium is located here, as is the Purple People bridge. You'll find horse drawn carriages as well.

We went to the Levee to visit the book store. The Barnes and Noble Book Store there is huge. They have everything. The staff there is very helpful. We were able to take my daughter's Nook Color back. They have a big selection of books and everything else! Outside the store you can enjoy a refreshing ice ball to cool... More

During a road trip, came here based on reviews. there wasn't really anything here. There are very limited, maybe 5 stores at most inside the mall... And 3-4 kiosks outside. There's a theater inside and an arcades place which I guess would be fun for the kids. It's next to the aquarium but not sure how that is. You pay... More

We love coming here, weather it's a night out with the husband or a day trip with the kids there is always something to do. The mall lacks shops but I don't think that's really what people come for. A good way to spend the day or evening anytime of the year.
