Cincinnati and Newport: Visiting Newport on the Levee and Cincinnati

We've been to Cincinnati a lot over the years to shop and go to occasional sporting events, but this spring was the first time we really spent time exploring Cincinnati and nearby Newport, Kentucky, and boy to we have a lot to show you! For those of you who may not know the area, Newport is a small town right across the river from downtown Cincinnati. Newport is home to Newport on the Levee, which is an outdoor mall filled with great places to eat and home of the Newport Aquarium. We recommend going when the weather is nice so you stroll along the riverfront and check out the view of downtown Cinci. And when your done at Newport at the Levee you are just steps away from the rest of Newport, which has a great little main street of its own and historic neighborhoods which are very pedestrian friendly, so leave your car where you parked it and take a walking tour. If you love river towns and history as much as we do, look online for guided history tours or even a ghost tour of the area.

We are loving our time in Cinci and we have lots more to show you, so if you see us around Cinci with our cameras in and, be sure to say hi when you see Josh and Joe Travels!
