Set on the charmingly rugged Oregon Coast, Newport offers a variety of fun and educational activities for the whole family. The beautiful coastline provides myriad activities from mountain biking, hiking, golf and flying kites, to bird watching and strolling the sandy shores, exploring rock pools, combing for fossils and spotting marine life in its natural habitat. The Oregon Coast Aquarium is worth a visit to walk through a glass tunnel surrounded by sharks and stroke an octopus, while the historic Nye Beach is a perfect place for a picnic with its pretty cottages and laid-back atmosphere. Newport’s most iconic landmark is the impressive Yaquina Bay Bridge, which is an ambassador for the city and a magnificent piece of art-deco architecture and there two picturesque lighthouses on Yaquina Head and Yaquina Bay, one of which is the tallest on the Oregon Coast.
Officially known as the ‘Dungeness Crab Capital of the World,’ Newport is the place to enjoy public crabbing. Grab a cold Rogue brew can be savored at Brewer’s on the Bay, a restaurant and bar at the foot of the Yaquina Bay Bridge that offers over 40 taps and spectacular panoramic views of Yaquina Bay.
