Lifestyle in Newport, KY

Newport, located at the confluence of the Licking and Ohio Rivers directly across from Cincinnati, is an old river town with a rich history and a focus on the future. The city was settled in 1791 and was named after Christopher Newport, the commander of the first ship to reach Jamestown, Virginia. The city grew especially with a large German immigration during the late 1800s. Newport used to have a bit of a reputation as a “Sin City” – due to gambling halls and other not-so-savory activities on Monmouth Street. During the 1980s and 1990s, Newport transformed itself with a focus on tourism and its riverfront. In 1999, the Newport Aquarium opened and boasts a collection of over 11,000 aquatic creatures, including 50 sharks which can be viewed through 200 feet of clear, underwater tunnels. The following year, the Newport on the Levee shopping and entertainment development opened. With over 17,000 residents, Newport is now a great place to play, walk and live.
