Newport is a working commercial fishing port which means superb, fresh seafood. You can only buy whole fish from the ships, theyll clean and portion them for a modest price, which is a great value if you can use 20 pounds of fish. The local seafood shops on the bay front have great product, pricey but you're paying for quality.... More

We always have fun here. There is something for everybody! Great restaurants and shopping. You can go on a boat and go on a whale watching tour or sip a brewski overlooking the water.

Great place - sights, smells, sounds of the Ocean/ Bay. You can go down and see the Seal lounging around or go do the touristy things that the have down there. But my favorite is... Go over to Rouge Brew Pub and have some Great Beer and Fish & Chips They are the Best !

It would be a serious mistake to pass through Newport without visiting the Historic Bayfront. My favorite place there would be the docks where the sea lions heist themselves out of the water to snooze until someone comes to crowd them off and then the hollering begins! Also especially enjoy the kitchen store and the candy store even if I... More

Staying in Newport is the best place to stay on the Oregon Coast. Walking around the bay front, seeing all the boats, smelling the fresh fish in the air. Wonderful shops and restaurants.

We chose to visit the bayfront when it wasn't high tourist season. We found a sunny inside table at Local Ocean Restaurant, had the best rock cod sandwich I've ever tasted, and then strolled along the bay and watched the many sea lions.

It's great to walk from just below the Coast Guard Station all the way out to the marina and back again, visiting the many shops and restaurants along the way. The commercial fishing operate right there, in the midst of the tourist industry, giving the visitor a chance to see the work that brought this community to where it is... More

We were out visiting the Yaquina lighthouse and could hear seals yelping in the distance. I'd read that seals often visited the pier, so we drove down to the bayfront and located where all the seal-action was going on. Literally hundreds of seals on piers, jetties and in the water, yelping and battling for space on rocks and piers. I've... More
