The Broadway District, it’s “where the locals go”.
That’s what the City Of Newport’s new campaign for The Broadway District will use to promote the businesses on Broadway and how they hope to encourage locals and visitors to visit Broadway this summer while construction continues on the Broadway Streetscape Project.
In Newport, Rhode Island there is one place that locals go to have a good time, shop at great stores and meet friends — and that is the Local Broadway District. Check out 6 blocks of awesome, packed with great bars, indie restaurants, coffee shops, live music, and more. See a show. Rent a bike. Explore vintage clothes, a bakery, kitchen store, and some quirky shops you have to see for yourself. Plus great parks and café seating. Come on by and join the fun!
Of course, it always comes back to History when in Newport.
America’s freedom began on Broadway. Before the Boston Tea Party, there was the Newport Stamp Act Riot of 1765. Per the news of the day, “the chief contrivers…sent into the street strong Drink in plenty with Cheshire cheese and other provocatives to…riot.” See where it happened at the Old Colony House, and the Wanton Lyman Hazard House. Then get your own good time going on Broadway.
Raising awareness of where visitors can find parking is also a priority;
You’ll really dig Broadway. And right now, we’re doing a little digging of our own. New streetscapes and new parking are being put in. But no worries! We are open for business, with SPECIAL PARKING just for you. Look for this sign, and pull right in.
