Yaquina Head Lighthouse, Newport

(600+ reviews on the web)
Lighthouse Tourist Spot
Built in 1871, Yaquina Head Lighthouse is Oregon's only wooden lighthouse that's still standing and fully operational. Although it initially was in service for only three years, it was re-lit in 1996. Today its lights are visible from a distance of nearly 10 km (6 mi). Take a self-guided or organized tour of the lighthouse to see it from the inside, including the watch room and basement, where you can view an informative video. A store offers educational items about lighthouses and coastal habitats. Guided tours must be reserved at the interpretive center, and space is limited. Put Yaquina Head Lighthouse into our Newport trip generator and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
