Wow so much to see and do. Great shops and restaurants you could spend the whole day here, and don't miss all the sea lions

Restaurants, coffee shops, fish, sea lions. This area really is worth an afternoon. The sea lion symphony is great.

Very narrow streets but lot going on. Many little shops and eateries. Parking is a problem if a busy night.Good place to stop and walk around. Great views of the boats.

They opened the second floor for dining and have it set up to handle parties with separation curtains made of metal mesh. Rather unique. Waiting lines still exist but are not as long as before. The food remains great and we eat there every time we visit Newport. Prices are good and food is great. They frequently have Ling Cod... More

They seem to roll up the sidewalks in Newport at 7 pm. A few nice restaurants along the waterfront. We didn't find much else of interest in town.

This is a great place to come and walk around on a sunny day. I would come here early as the parking spaces fill up quickly. It is fun to walk to the docks where the sea lions are - they are very noisy so you know if they are there by walking around.

Very quaint, historic and real... a working bayfront that's colorful. It's worth the crowds in the summer or weekends to see it and dine out at many of the restaurants, buy fresh fish at the fish markets, take a tour or fishing boat out in the harbor and ocean, watch the fishermen, and stay at one of the bayview hotels....

It is fun to walk around and explore everything. Though here it is so very easy to spend a LOT of money as most things cost to get in to and explore! Most of the stores are so friendly and so willing to just sit and have a conversation with you! So many shops and souvenirs to choose from it... More

I was a frequent go-er to Depoe Bay and never got all the way down to the waterfront. Man, am I glad I finally did! It's a quaint walk through tourist shops and so much fun! The little glass shop there right on main street (name escapes me, sorry) has a whole bowl of little glass smoothed chips for sale... More
