Thames Street is a quaint little shopping area with restaurants, bars, shops and marinas in downtown Newport. Some of the shops were closed when we visited, likely because it’s not peak season yet. Slightly disappointed as we expected some more unique shops but it was...More

Thames Street is the major thoroughfare in downtown Newport. Some historic buildings along the road with many shops and restaurants. Deserves a stroll.

Thought this street would be filled with special shops. There were a few nice shops and several very good restaurants, but did not live up to our expectations.

Nor would you want to. Thames is the most prominent attraction to this little NE coastal town. Whether you are walking for a drink, a meal or to see and be seen, cruisin in the car or on a scooter ... you just have to.

Love shopping in all the stores along Thames St. Found some great after Christmas sales and loved window shopping.
