You can't drive down the Oregon Coast without stopping here. This is one of those places you must see. The old Bayfront is a great place for couples as well as families with young kids. There's lots to do here. All kinds of great restaurants, bars, candy and ice cream parlours and funky little souvenier shops. There's even a Ripleys... More

Tons of little shops to explore, excellent food choices, and you can watch the fishermen bring in their daily haul.

If you truly want to experience a working port, this is the place to go in Newport. There are alot of shops selling this and that and more fresh seafood than I could possibly eat in a two day trip. There are several attractions such as Ripley's Believe It or Not and The Wax Works. Probably not good for small... More

If you are looking for something aimed at tourist, this might be where you want to go the Ripley's museum and plenty of shops and restaurants available to make an afternoon out of it.

Take your time. The streets are steep, very steep. Once along the bayfront the shops are an attraction on their own. Such a variety of eats, treats, clothing and gifts. Never know were you might find that one of a kind novelty item.

We enjoy all the wonderful shops along the bay front. Wonderful art,shells,jewelry, saltwater taffy ,and more. Then there is the dock covered in noisy sea lion's barking for the tourist.

It is not an action packed happening kind of place. It is a place where you slow your pace down and enjoy the sights, sounds, smells, and more. Coming to the historic bayfront is the best part of enjoying a trip to Newport. Slow down, enjoy, taste, see, and don't miss seeing the Sea Lions.

The Bay front is always busy but we went during the week so finding a place to park was not as hard as the weekends.
