I love this area of Newport. When I see folks walking around in rain gear, rubber boots and a rain hat I know I am on the bay front. Nice place to be a tourist and enjoy the sights.

Find your own way to the ocean front. Indication in town is poor. It is a rather small area. We did not see many restaurants.

The bay front is a must go to when visiting. Make sure you visit the sea lions at the port dock. Lots to see and do. Tons of great shops for art work and awesome salt water taffy.

There are at least two docks on the north side of the bay (where the sea lions congregate) where you can fish and crab.
