If you've never been to Newport, RI...checking out Bannister's Wharf and Bowen's Wharf in Newport, RI is a must see! Newport RI has so many things to offer to everyone, shopping, site-seeing, historical buildings...a great place to visit!

“Nice little warf off the main drag.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

We came here to catch our sailboat tour and found more to do than just sailing. There are many cool shops and places to eat. We ended up eating at one of the nearby restaurants after our sailing outing.

Nice place with shops but mostly closed due to holiday. Much more lively in the better weather months.

“Make the visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2012

While you're in Newport visiting the mansions, make sure you make a stop at Bannister's Wharf. There are plenty of stores to browse around in with lots of restaurants too. The scenery is lovely right on the water and we even rented a boat and putted around the harbor with some gigantic private yachts to ogle as we just relaxed and took in the views. We highly recommend a visit.
