This is a bustling, working seaport. There are fishing boats, big and small. You can buy fish right from the boats if it is in season. There are sea lions lazing on the docks waiting for fish parts to eat. There is a bustling seafood processing plants and the restaurants serve fresh fish. Fishermen hang out at the bars. So you really are in the heart of Newport life in that sense. On the other hand, there is a lot of touristy things - art galleries, kitschy sea themed gift shops, a wax museum, and restaurants from inexpensive to high end trying to cater to the tourist crowd. If you would like to go deep sea fishing, or on a whale watching boat ride, this is the place on the coast to do that also. So all in all, I would recommend this place as a very interesting stop on the coast. While in Newport, you might also like to visit the Oregon Coast Aquarium if you have kids, or go down to Nye beach if you want to boutique shop, eat in some very nice restaurants, or take a walk on the beach.

We spent an afternoon strolling through the bay front area and loved it! From the quaint shops, breweries, incredibly fresh seafood and the wharf where we watched the sea lions frolic, it could not have been a better day spent at the beach!

If you want to see sea lions for free without paying for caves in Florence this is the place. Many working fishing docks also carry a smell that bothered a few in our groups. Ripley museum seemed out of place but some cute shops
