We spent over two hours exploring shops along the Bayfront. The street is very walkable and this is a worthy stopover. Don't expect to find a table in the rated restaurants during the lunch hour in the summer. The highlight was the dock overcrowded with sea lions - what a sight and what a racquet! I have never seen so... More

It was a really charming fishing village with a ton of little shops and art galleries... but be warned. Everything closes at like 4 or 5... so if you want to see anything get there earlier in the day.

Moe's is a "must stop" restaurant for travelers to the Oregon Coast. Imagine our delight when we stopped this time to find that they had a "gluten-free" menu! I had hesitated to eat here (although we had in the past) due to allergy problems but agreed to go because my husband doesn't feel a trip to the Coast is complete... More

We were trying to find out were all the seal barking was coming from and drove into the Historic Bayfront. So much to see and do. Enjoyed some ice cream and walking. Lots of shops and places to eat. We stayed in Gleneden which doesn't have a center so we really liked this place. Bigger than Depot Bay center too.

Lots of action with fishing boats coming and going! We found the sea lions comfortably ensconced on their own wharf, which drew lots of sight seers. Plenty of shops and restaurants to attract visitors!

I love the Bayfront! Shops galore with the greatest items from galleries with art to pet stores to seafood markets to restaurants to souvenir and t-shirt shops to attractions like Undersea Gardens to the docks with the Sea Lions. Something for all ages and a great sightseeing, people watching place to stroll.

Very nice and quaint just as you would have expected the seaport area to be 50 years ago. The smell later in the day is kinda fishy but that's to be expected.

I love this little town. It is a must see if you are driving the Oregon coast. Make sure you also get to the aquarium as it's just as quaint. Take time to walk, eat and shop at this magical bay front.

Loved all the hokey stores, chowder shops and murals on the buildings. The sea lions on the docks are a hoot.
