“Nice street, with plenty of shops and restaurants”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

Nice place to shop and/or dine, especially if you are going to Newport, RI to see the mansions. Park at the visitors center if you go.

“A Street of Character”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

Thames street has not been overrun by international franchise outlets, although there is a starbucks & subway buried in the mix; it's a nice variety of eclectic local eateries & shops.

“disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

This is a tourist attraction trap with all the t shirt shops. I had hoped to wander and find upscale shops.
Not a good weekend away.

“Interesting shops”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2013 via mobile

Walking around is fun with all of the different shops. Every one is different and unique. Some are pricey and many are not.
