“Newport Find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

The heart of Newport. This area has plenty to offer. Plenty of shopping (including many locally produced items), pubs, restaurants, parks and close to the docks. One of those streets you just can't bypass. This was my first time to Newport and I will be revisiting.

“pure newport...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

one of the best characteristics of new england as a whole, is how nice it is to just spend time in it...
thames st. is one of those places... you can go almost anywhere and find yourself in a great place... eat, drink, listen to music, have a coffee, etc... just great...
of course you can shop too...

“Street of many different things.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

First timer for Newport, but not the last. Only in the area for two days and that is not enough time to even see 1/2 of what this street (and area) has to offer. The shops are non stop. Food? forgetaboutit. BUT all are on the expensive side.

“So much to do, so little time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

Thames street offers such a wide variety of restaurants and shops that it's hard to decide which to take advantage of when you have limited time. The menus in many of the restaurants are quite extensive making it hard to,choose. We also found most of the people in the shops to be quite friendly.
