We had been to Newport twice before to the aquariums but not down to the pier. We enjoyed the shops and flower box lined with flower boxes, restrooms, and a bench here and there. Watching the sea lions lounge on the docks was entertaining.

It has something for everyone, food, drinks, candy, shopping, knick knacks, people watching, and everything else you can imagine!

Some touristy shops, places to eat a nice meal, grab a snack or treat, watch the boats, listen to the sea lions, and stroll.

Suggest if you go during high season you go midweek. Parking can be a serious issue. Don't plan on too much time here.

This Is an excellent place to visit at any time. In November the crowds are smaller and the shops are still all open. Prices are also reduced on many items. The murals are very interesting as well. Stop by Lattas glass works, a super nice shop keeper and full of great information.

This is a working bay front with fishing industry warehouses, boats coming coming and going and a lot of economic activity going on, but there is also some great art, amazing food and fun activities mixed in. It is interesting to see all of it! The smells of fresh fish, both raw and cooking permeates the air, the loud barking... More

I had not been to the Bayfront for several years and was very disappointed. We had trouble finding a decent coffee shop. While we acknowledge this is a salty sea fare locale, we felt this area has really gotten run down.

The only thing I like about the bay front is the boats and seals. Every fun place is so expensive to go to. If you have been there once there is no reason to spend that much money again. Belindas candy is worth going to, but I try to stay away from it.

The bayfront is off of 101 but worth visiting. The marina is my favorite place to walk midway is where the sealions hang out and you can hear them before you see them !! Don't miss.
