There are several restaurants and lots of touristy shops here. It is interesting to watch the fishing boats unload and the harbour seals arrive in June for the summer. A very busy spot in June so summers must be a zoo.

Newport has an active fishing industry. Walk the bay front and see boats come in and unload their cargo. Great shops/tours and the sea lions are a blast!!
