Entertainment Abounds in Northern Kentucky

Newport’s roots date back to its founding in 1795, and its multifaceted history includes casinos, mobsters and a stint when it was known as “Sin City.” Today, Newport has transformed into a vibrant riverfront community with a front-row view of the Cincinnati skyline and plenty of things for visitors to see and do. There’s plenty of entertainment at New Riff Distilling, BB Riverboats, Newport Aquarium and Newport on the Levee, plus live music at the new MegaCorp Pavilion venue. Newport is sure to entertain, and the next-door gems of Bellevue and Dayton are charming sister cities you won't want to miss!
