Newport, Kentucky, is an exciting city set on the Ohio River. Explore its lively waterfront, find cultural centers inside historic landmarks and cross a state border via a footbridge. Established in 1795, Newport wasn’t always a tourist-friendly destination. Retrace the paths of notorious gangsters who roamed the streets in the 1920s and 1930s and gave rise to the town’s Sin City nickname.
On the riverfront, Newport on the Levee is a one-stop amusement, dining and shopping complex. It has art galleries and retail outlets, fast-food joints, upscale restaurants, a movie theater, train rides and video arcades. Experience the thrill of being surrounded by sharks at Newport Aquarium.
Stroll along scenic Riverboat Row and board the USS Nightmare haunted steamboat. The row hosts summer events including June’s Italianfest, August’s Great Inland Seafood Festival and September’s Newport Oktoberfest.
The revitalized downtown buildings once housed gangster-run casinos and speakeasy bars. Enthusiastic guides lead tours of the popular haunts of racketeers. One of these, Thompson House, is the former home of the Thompson submachine gun inventor John T. Thompson. Today, enjoy the art gallery and performing arts venue inside this 1820s mansion.
The Southgate House Revival is a 19th-century church converted into a concert hall. Admire stately Victorian-era mansions in the East Row Historic District. While walking the downtown streets, listen for the daily midday chime of the huge World Peace Bell.
Another fun activity is walking across the Purple People Bridge. It spans the Ohio River to Cincinnati and connects with the Ohio River Trail. Follow the trail to major Cincinnati attractions such as the Great American Ballpark and U.S. Bank Arena. Return via the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge to Newport’s neighboring city of Covington and spend a sunny afternoon in Devou Park.
Fly to Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport and catch a bus or rent a car from there. As it is just a 5-minute walk from downtown to the riverfront, Newport is a great city to explore on foot.

Staff was friendly, breakfast was really good. The curtains in the rooms need to be replaced. Some areas in bathroom need more attention. Beds are very comfortable. Overall stay was good.
Need a menu of food offered we were under the impression we could only get there food bowl found out later we could special order
Neighborhood offered plenty of restaurants and a short drive to a grocery store. Easy walking distance to the riverfront and Cincinnati side of the river. Very helpful and friendly owners. Cute boutique downstairs.
The shared covered porch with ceiling fans is very nice and clean. Convenient parking, close to many restaurants, shops, just steps from the Ohio River. Wonderful, clean place!
This was our second visit in a month. The location is right in the heart of it all. The rooms are cute and cozy. Just like home. The beds are excellent. We brought friends this time and they were impressed. Will definitely be back.
Great location, within walking distance to the Levee and just a walk across the bridge to Cincinnati. The room was very nice, clean and comfortable. The Boutique in the front is so cute and has great prices, worth checking out. Would definitely stay here again.
The service provided by the staff was outstanding. The room was nice and spacious. The only issue I had was the mattress. It was uncomfortable for me so it was difficult for me to have a good night rest.
