Newport on the Levee is a shopping center located on Third Street in Newport, Kentucky. It is located adjacent to the Purple People Bridge along the Ohio River and has a view of Ohio River. The Levee is only one block away from the East Row Historic District and the Monmouth Street Historic District. It is named after the levee that it rests on.

Unusually among lifestyle centers, Newport on the Levee is more an entertainment center than a retail hub. The only anchor tenants that are typical of those found in standard lifestyle centers are bookselling giant Barnes & Noble and a 20-screen AMC Theatres multiplex. Most businesses in the center are restaurants, bars, or entertainment establishments. The highest-profile tenant of the center is the Newport Aquarium.

Newport on the Levee stands on the site of the former Posey Flats apartments, a building listed on the National Register of Historic Places in Campbell County.
