Get a glimpse of the fishing industry of the past at Newport's Historic Bayfront, which still operates as a fishing port. Watch ships bring in large catches that are sold to the many restaurants lining the water. You'll notice sea lions and gulls eager to snatch stray fish. 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.
