We wandered around downtown enjoying the coming and going of the boats. My favorite part was the docks full of sea lions. You can hear them bark throughout the whole bayfront. As you walk past the warehouses "sea" smells fill the air.

Be sure to visit the docks to see the sea lions. Take a jacket or coat any time of the year. Love the candy shops.

We spent one full day here which would be the minimum to see it all.

Very quaint setting with lots of shops selling unusual knick-knacks - ideal for souvenirs for yourself and loved ones. The murals lining the buildings are beautiful nautial depictions adding lots of charm. Now, we knew that there were sea-lions in the area from our Easter lunch visit earlier in the week. What we didn't know was how many!!! When you... More

Really fascinating waterfront. It is a commercial fishing port as it has major refrigeration facilities. It has day fishers for the sportsman and of course a flotilla of personal sea craft large enough to keep a very active Coast Guard unit very busy with people who have not a clue about the rules of the nautical road ( inland or...

We were very impressed with all the beautiful nautical related murals on most of the buildings lining the water front. Very quaint area to walk around and see the the boats in the harbor and all the little shops.

Lots of stuff to do, some great restaurants. This was a romantic outing, but with Ripley's Believe it or Not, a Wax Museum, and an aquarium, we'd bring back the kid in a heartbeat.

Newport's historic bayfront was a great place to watch the sea lions, shop at quaint shops, & dine at the Rogue Brewery.

I'm seriously in love with this town. I hated to leave.. Everyone was so nice. The shopkeepers were so polite,helpful,and friendly. Tons of coffee and chocolate shops which are always my favorite. Lots of places selling amazing art from local artists. I hated leaving and can't wait to go back. You won't be disappointed.
