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.

Lots to see and do

Come down and enjoy the area and lots of places to eat and drink. For a good time with adults with a sense of humor is Dicks last resort.

We had a great time down on the Levee, plenty of restaurants and attractions to fill almost an entire day. Great place for family or couples. The layout is easy to follow. We had a great time at Brothers! Would recommend this place to anyone.

You could literally spend the whole day here. Lots to do, lots to eat. There was a kids festival going on and it would be a great place to take your kids for entertainment.

Not much to do and not enough shops for a nice place. I thought there were lots to offer inside the air conditioning building. Snow cones were delicious for the price. I went inside the info building and the young girls were Not friendly or people person.

We like to go here several times a week, the purple people bridge makes for a nice walk day or night. The restaurants represent a variety for everyone's tastes and price, also, always something going on.Family oriented, couples or happy hour with friends..

Fun shopping and eating experience just on the other side of Cincinnati. from downtown Cincy, you can walk over the Purple walking/biking bridge to this fun place, The aquarium is there, great for kids. It's fairly new and are adding more and more stores/reastuarnat and building a hotel. It is directly across the Ohio River from the baseball and football... More

I found this attraction somewhat disappointing. The main attraction is the excellent aquarium. There are a few shops to browse( the best is the art gallery) and a couple of highly priced restaurants .Easy access to the Purple People Walking Bridge is a plus and the river views are lovely.There is an AMC movie complex but there were no signs...

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.
