Parking
Parking on Newport streets is very limited and parking regulations are strictly enforced. Touro Synagogue encourages visitors to park at the Newport Gateway Center, located at 23 America's Cup Avenue (at W. Marlborough Street).

From the Newport Gateway Center, Touro Synagogue is roughly a 5 to 10-minute walk through the colonial town center. You can download a guide map showing the route and describing Jewish historic sites along the way here: Guide to Washington Square.pdf

Visitors can also take advantage of the Newport Trolley which provides (for a modest fee) transportation throughout Newport. The City of Newport also has several public pay lots.
