This was a fun stroll lots of shops and beautiful paintings on the buildings. Also food places to eat at. Plenty of places to watch the sea lions swim in the bay or along the dock

Worth the jaunt from Lincoln City for something else to do. Same sorts of shops, but just as enjoyable.

Love the bayfront, watching the boats, listening to the Sea Loins, people watching, and art galleries to check out too. Cafes, pubs, coffee shops to stop in also. You do not need to spend lots of $$, just enjoy the sights and sounds.

Enjoyed the three areas we went to The Under Seas Garden, the Wax Museum, and Ripleys Believe It or Not. The price for all three was purchased at a discount rate. Very good deal.

Sea lions and beautiful views of Yaquina bridge and the bay are the star attractions of Newport's Historic Bayfront! The sea lions are so entertaining to watch :) There are also shops and restaurants and watching the fishing boats come in with their daily catch.

It was a nice day, not too cold and some sun. We enjoyed looking at the boats and the sea lions who had congregated on a pier.
