Caught the buss here daily for our stay after buying a ticket for 6$ to ride all day. Buses weren't always on time but nice enough drivers. Clean bathrooms. Brochures galore to help you decide on your day. Close to Thames st.

“Helpful Staff”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

This is the best place to start your tour of Newport. A knowledgeable staff along with a diorama of key places in the city lay the foundation for planning a full day. Tickets available for various bus or trolley tours with a good description of the key aspects of each. Located in the heart of Newport, the Center provides a staging point for exploration. Parking is pricey so work out a strategy for finding a spot on the neighborhood streets (watch out for the restrictions!) that lead down onto Thames Street.

“Super Helpful”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

Every person working at the Newport Visitor Center must have been on the happy pill! The woman who helped us get bus tickets at the desk was absolutely superb. She knew her facts without hesitation, and was able to help us promptly. The visitor center is quite spacious, and oh how clean! The bathrooms were nicer than the ones in the hotel I stayed at! Make this your first stop to get tickets, info, and directions when arriving in Newport. I doubt that you will face any problems.

“Very helpful.”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Every employee here was friendly and helpful. The layout was good with plenty of room to move about. Clean restrooms, too. It even had a vending machine with water cheaper than at the museums. Thanks, everybody!

“a good place to start your trip”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

The staff were friendly and informative. Give them an idea of what you want to see or ask for advice. They marked up a map with all the sights we wanted to see, and gave us a few tips. There is limited 15 minute free parking, but it is not easy to find. When you make a right off America's cup past the center, it is on the right, and behind the Visitor's Center
