An extremely helpful and friendly pair of ladies made us feel welcome. We left with feeling well informed, and with a handful of brochures of the places we wanted to visit on the four day stop we made while passing through Oregon. I'm glad we chose Waldport as our layover point.

Waldport is about the dullest place on the planet. The good part is it's quiet, uncrowded, a few weird shops, and near the ocean.

They do a very good job with what they have. Sometimes politics is slow on the give & take. We've found them very informative, but then we walked in with specifics we'd heard about word of mouth

This center, located at the south End of the bridge provides a lot of historic information about bridges along the Oregon Coast and the construction of this particular bridge. Usually they also have an exhibit on Salmon. They can provide information about fishing, crabbing, renting kayaks, digging clams, bird watching, and so forth. Waldport used to be a big logging...
