Newport, Kentucky is the entertainment community of northern Kentucky. It was named for the commander of the first ship to reach Jamestown, Virginia. An old city, Newport was founded in 1795. For a time, it was home to the former Fort Washington.
After some hard times, Newport built the Newport Aquarium and the Newport on the Levee. There is always something going on at the aquarium. Brave Shark Bridge or just watch the reef fish going about their fishy business. Newport on the Levee offers a multi-level urban/retail/entertainment center just across the river from downtown Cincinnati. Eat, catch a movie or a concert, shop and more at Newport on the Levee.
