Logo   Shopping in Newport, Rhode Island


Shopping in Newport (map) is a pleasure because you're walking its charming streets and wharves as you do.

Art, antiques, nautical paraphernalia and memorabilia, gifts, jewelry, maps and charts, home furnishings, and of course all sorts of clothing are available in Newport's shops and boutiques.

Upper Thames Street is lind with boutiques, caf├ęs and restaurants, and there's little traffic, so it's a great place to stroll and window-shop.

The historic Brick Market building at the top of Upper Thames Street near Washington Square is a grat place to start, with shops selling handmade gifts, shoes, costume jewelry and all sorts of other items.

Next, cross America's Cup Avenue to Bowen's Wharf and Bannister's Wharf, both of which are packed with shops and restaurants.

Lower Thames Street is a bit less visited, perhaps because if its narrow sidewalks, but prices may be better here because of it.

And don't forget the Newport Mansions Stores in a number of the mansions administered by the Preservation Society of Newport County: The Breakers, Marble House, The Elms, Rosecliff, and on Bannister's Wharf in downtown Newport.
