We walked down Thames Street while on our visit to Newport. It's quite charming, with lots of restaurants and shops. Can we be honest here? The shops are totally touristy...prices kind of high. There's a really good soft ice cream shop on Thames Street that also sells cupcakes.

Lots of local color, diverse food, lots of shopping. Parking is available close by. Be prepared that some of the shops don't take credit cards

You have to walk this street if visiting Newport. So many great places to eat, drink and shop! They pronounce it wrong but don't hold that against the locals!

Great place to walk and get souvenirs from your trip. The lively bars and restaurants make it hard not to go in and eat / drink even when your not hungry!

Narrow street with a lot of shops. Some of them are quite uniquely local. You can find something you like there.

The street is cute and has not been invaded by many big chain stores, the shops are a little cheesy.

This is a fun cute street. Parking can get tricky. Some parking spaces are $5 for all day. Lots of cute shops and lovely atmosphere.
