In 2014, Conde Nast Traveler named Newport the Best Walking City in the US. If we had to guess, we'd say it's because our quaint cobblestone streets are laden with eclectic shops and boutiques (plus a whole lot of historic charm and architectural treasures). Since then, our walkable streets have expanded with plenty more to discover. 2017 brings 12 great new spots to shop throughout Newport & Bristol Counties.
