This place has the look of the old fishing wharfs. The wharf has a lot of good shopping and restuarants. The downside you have to pay for parking.

Nice way to spend the afternoon. Views of the bay with fun shopping and restaurants on the water. The shops were interesting with some items specific to Newport. Highly recommend.

Bowen's Wharf is a fun and beautiful place to visit as a tourist. Lots of shops and restaurants. The view over the Atlantic Ocean is incredible. Worth exploring or finding a little place to eat.

If you have teenage girls, they will LOVE this place. My little sister was obsessed with taking pictures here! and she actually got some really good ones! The ocean view is also absolutely beautiful.

We stopped here for lunch and ended up taking a sailing trip. We also picked up some great souvenirs. There are plenty of eating options - even a couple of places for ice cream. My only word of warning is the parking. It was $8 an hour! Ouch! Just another couple of blocks would have been $10 for the entire day. Our parking was $48.
