The eastside has been transformed into the East Row Historic District, a place where homes have been returned to their original historic state. Property values are dramatically on the rise and pride in the community can be seen on every corner.

The Riverfront area is being developed and tourist attractions such as the Newport Aquarium, Millennium Bell, and Newport on the Levee have been erected.
