Gangster Tours in Northern Kentucky

Before Las Vegas - there was Newport!

Newport was known as America's Playground from the 1920s to 1960s and it was the stomping ground for celebrities like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Shirley MacLaine.

Following a stream of national exposes and reform movements in the 1960s, Newport began to clean up it's act and the Newport mobs moved west.

Newport has cultivated a reputation in recent years as a river-city gem, but the past is perfectly captured in the Newport Gangster Tour, read more.

You can explore the streets where the mob made their millions, gamblers lost their lives, and ladies of the night earned their reputations. The tour features a high energy presentation inside an old casino to explain the historic significance of Newport and discover how this little town gave birth to the modern day gaming industry.
