A town that survives on the sea, Newport's population of just over 10,000 supports a healthy commercial fishing industry.
Step off the beaten path and head to Yachats coastline and Drift Creek Falls Trail. Visit Fogarty Creek State Recreation Area and Taft Bay for some beach relaxation. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Newport: Gleneden Beach State Park (in Gleneden Beach), Lincoln City (Alderhouse Glass Blowers & North Lincoln County Historical Museum) and Cascade Head Trail (in Otis). There's still lots to do: immerse yourself in nature at Seal Rock State Wayside, look for gifts at Ainslee's Salt Water Taffy, identify plant and animal life at Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area, and don't miss a visit to Boiler Bay State Wayside.
