Newport

Aquariums · Beaches · Wildlife Areas
A town that survives on the sea, Newport's population of just over 10,000 supports a healthy commercial fishing industry. The misty, chill waters of the Pacific and the dramatic ridges of the coastline provide a backdrop for crabbing and clamming, which are popular things to do here. Travelers enjoy whale-watching and sea life tours. Recreational fishing draws locals and tourists alike. Consider trying some fresh seafood, particularly the shellfish, at one of the family-owned restaurants with a view over the ocean. When using our United States trip itinerary planning website to make an itinerary online, Newport holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.

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.
