Thames Street, Newport

4.1
#1 of 9 in Shopping in Newport
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. Make Thames Street a centerpiece of your Newport vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Newport trip itinerary maker.
