Whether you like to shop, eat or just look around there is a little bit of everything in the Historic Bayfront. From the Original Mo's to more trendy Rogue Beer your set. Fun things for families to do with the Undersea Gardens or The Wax Works. Best of all is watch all the sea lions for free!

We we went down to the bay, to have breakfast. Exiting the car, we could hear Sea Lions barking, quite loudly. The bay was full of fishing boats, also.

Not only is the bayfront an excellent place to stop an check out the view.... but also a neat place to check out all the little local shops and restaurants. Also cool to see the locals going about their everyday lives living on the ocean.

A good selection of shops for both kids and Adults. Lots to see. You can also go down on the docks and get fresh crab right off the boats.

We had a great visit. Was interesting to watch the fish and crab processing. The seal lions on the rocks were very cool.

Even if you simply wander around without entering any of the shops or attractions found on this bayfront, you'll enjoy yourself. It's beautiful, close to the bridge for pleasurable viewing, there's boats all around, the sea lions lounge on the old docks...it's fantastic. Never mind all the wonderful businesses scattered throughout. I have absolutely left a piece of my heart... More

There were plenty of wild sea lions sitting below the boardwalk enjoying the sun and posing for photos. It was wonderful to see them interactivity in the wild and hearing them call out to one another.

The large commercial fishing fleet based here gives this place an authentic feel. A variety of shops and restaurants provide interest and fun. Even though I live in another Oregon coast resort town I will make a point of coming here because of the "seaport charm". Kind of like a mini-San Francisco Bay, mini-Coney Island and New England fishing village... More
