Just before the start of the mansions are several boutiques and gourmet shops selling fine linens, cheese and wine, tailored and trendy clothing, homewares, and fine jewelry. The Tennis Hall of Fame is also on Bellevue Avenue and sells tennis & sportswear. The start of the Bellevue Avenue shops is just around the corner from La Farge Perry House.
This cobblestone street running along the Newport Harbor is often viewed as the center of Newport. It runs 1.5 miles long and is sprinkled with unique gift shops, one-of-a-kind boutiques, restaurants, and bars. The start of Thames Street is about a 7 minute walk from La Farge Perry House.
Bowen's Wharf & Bannister's Wharf
These two wharfs are side by side, and offer boutique shopping at its finest. Tailored clothing, skincare, nautical gifts, jewelry, and art galleries are mixed in with a variety of restaurants to stop and have lunch.
Parallel to Thames Street, and two blocks east is the quieter Spring Street. If you are looking for antiques, this is the street to shop on, along with the small side streets running from Spring Street to Thames Street.
