Victory Arch reviews
Wife and I park right across the street and walked over. The arch is very impressive and its nice way to honor our veterans.

You can park right across the street and walk over to this impressive stone arch in Victory Park. Nice signage explaining its history, and well worth a few minutes

At this arch you will find a "sacred" fire that burns almost indefinitely and representing it's wealth of historical importance. Entrance upon this stone foundation will surely separate the tourist from the general surrounding of Downtown Newport into a lavishly kept and large open ended park on the way to an outlook over the waters and with a clear view of the Naval carriers, some Maritime patrol on occasion and the company of families, friends and others traveling the walk for sightseeing, fitness or particularly in my case, meditation, a great meditation spot listening to the waters flows and the light hum as evidence of human engineering in the distance that creates an ambient sound and the area is very quiet on Sundays. Tourists may fish at the furthest left end of the park and will find law enforcement monitoring the area briefly for safety & security. A rather nice looking Huntington Ingalls corporate building is low key set aside from the park on the way in. On every 4th of July this park comes to life even more with concessions, a stage for music performances, huge fireworks displays, a local patriotic oldstyle band at the fiery monument, glow sticks and super packed full of people. This is a place to creates your memories with the people you love, your family and your friends. Enjoy it's simplicity, thank me later but most importantly, thank yourselves for embracing the simplicity and historical importance of the monument and Victory Landing Park. Stay for the sunset and take a moment to reset before your departure it's a beautiful sight.
The Victory Arch is a memorial to those who served in the American armed forces during periods of war. Considering it was rebuilt in 1962, and originally built in 1919 I think it looks fantastic and grand enough to remind people who are locals or tourists to approach it and remember those who served our country.
