Thames Street in downtown Newport is the place to go if you're looking for shops that carry everything from distinctive local items such as hand-blown glass to super chic apparel. A charming, vibrant one-way street, Thames is approximately 1.5 miles from beginning to end. It is perfect for a leisurely stroll and lined with restaurants so you can satisfy your palate in between browsing. A few blocks to the east of Thames you'll find ritzy Bellevue Avenue. While much of the street is residential, it is also home to a fine selection of trendy retail shops and sophisticated boutiques. The items on Bellevue may be a bit pricier than those on Thames, but you'll find that shopping at this address is worth the splurge.
