Enjoy fresh seafood and bay views at one of the restaurants. Bring along a jacket, because it gets chilly by the water.

Where to stay in Newport

In Newport, the majority of the lodgings are inside old, renovated grand Victorians near the coast or cottages close to the beach. If you're interested in accommodations on the water (cove, bay, or beach), look into the city's inns. The Yaquina Bay area provides excellent views and access to the nearby national park of the same name, while a few economy accommodations are located in the town center.
