For $7, today’s side deal gets you a ticket to the Newport Gangster Tour (a $15 value), which departs from East Fifth Street near The Syndicate. Tours are on hold for the winter, when fedoras typically go into hibernation, and are scheduled to resume Sunday, May 1, 2011. Today's deal is valid through Sunday, July 31, 2011.

Participants of the Newport Gangster Tour can glean intriguing historical knowledge about Newport’s sullied past while learning about gamblers, Tommy-gun wielders, and ladies of the night. Knowledgeable and entertaining tour guides lead groups while illuminating Newport’s crime-ridden history, its connection to some of the nation’s most notorious criminals, brothels, and speakeasies, and why bank robbers dressed up for heists as if they were going to church. Each 90-minute tour traverses eight blocks of mostly flat terrain and ensures a fun time for families, including the kind that are actually related to each other. Call to make your reservation at least 24 hours in advance.


The Newport Gangster Tour has been featured in Cincinnati Magazine's 2009 Best of the City issue, the Business Courier, UrbanCincy, and on Knoxnews.com:

  • Costumed guides lead this lively 90-minute, eight-block walking tour where famed gamblers made their millions and mobsters lost their lives. It’s an offer you can’t refuse. – Cincinnati Magazine
  • It’s a new company that gives locals and tourists a chance to dive into history for $15 a head. The original gangster tour was a weekend fundraiser for Gels, a Lloyd Memorial High School biology teacher who was trying pay for his students to take a service trip to Central America. When 1,200 people showed up for the eight-block tour of Newport’s former casino properties, Gels and other tour organizers decided to build a business. – Dan Monk, Business Courier

Newport is Haunted Tour

The sounds of country music and stomping boots emanate from Bobby Mackey's Music World most nights. But if you're unlucky, it's rumored you might hear something else—perhaps cries of "Get out!" or even "My head! My head!"

To learn why, just consult the cloak-clad guides of the Newport is Haunted Tour and follow their lanterns along Newport's shadowy streets. Over the course of 90–120 minutes, they'll share sinister tales of unsettling phenomena ranging from murders and suicides to a pothole that lies in wait for unsuspecting drivers.
