Newport


Resting comfortably on the south side of the Ohio River lies Newport, Ky., another great example of the region's fusion of old-school southern charm and contemporary development. At the mouth of the Purple People Bridge sits its greatest testament to development, the massive Newport on the Levee, a lively complex of entertainment hot spots, chic restaurants and trendy watering holes, as well as the acclaimed Newport Aquarium. Monmouth and York Streets capture the flavor of a century passed with its collection of charming storefronts and residential neighborhoods featuring welcoming local taverns as well as some of the region's best restaurants, including York Street Cafe.
