We were able to spend a beautiful day by the ocean with my 83 year old mother-in-law. We all had a wonderful time.

If you are a walker this is great place just be careful to check the place you park this is a challenge

As many say, the main street feels tourist trappy, and it is, you can see some people crab-fishing off the docks and visit many shops. Go off the main street and drive down the docks, buy a fish off one of the boats there and prepare it on your grill. Fresh off the boat and tasty as ever!

There were lots of gift shops including two candy shops. The restaurants had a mix of fish choices and burgers. If you're not a meat eater, there's not much for you.

Commercial fish processors across from fresh fish restaurants; what a combination! Tourist shops, candy shops, an Aquarium, and Wax Museum can all be found on the Bayfront.

Fun place to visit while in Newport. You can get up front and personal on the docks viewing the fishing fleets, seeing a multitude of sea lions, unique shops, good food, very friendly people. Just a fun place to visit - reminds one of a old fishing community - even "smells" like fish!!! I would give this a 5 star... More

Lots of interesting sights and smells along the bayfront. Unlike a lot of small coastal towns, Newport still has a fishing industry, and it smells that way. Along with the smells there are a number of interesting shops. Driving down is a bit challenging as roads are curvy and parking is tight, but we enjoyed a couple of hours of... More

Not quite as vastly impressive as the Oregon Coast, but still waterfront and nautical with many attractions such as aquarium, several seafood restaurants (Mo's! Local Ocean!) and gift shops. Easy to stroll through and get a sense of a Pacific Coast working fishing district.
