Thames Street, Newport

(4.1/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Pop into the antiques mall, shop in boutiques, visit museums, and admire the historic architecture of waterfront Thames Street. One of the city’s original two streets, this road passes through several blocks of what used to be a Quaker settlement in the 17th and 18th centuries. Today it accesses marinas and the harbor. Walking rather than driving makes it easy to shop and peruse the menus of the seafood restaurants. Put Thames Street at the forefront of your travel plans using our Newport vacation generator.
