Newport

Newport ©
A town that survives on the sea, Newport's population of just over 10,000 supports a healthy commercial fishing industry.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Mossy Creek Pottery and Alderhouse Glass Blowers. Popular historic sites such as Bush's Pasture Park and Bush House Museum are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Newport: Willamette Valley Vineyards (in Turner), Lincoln City (North Lincoln County Historical Museum, Roads End State Recreation Site, & more) and Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area (in Pacific City). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Fogarty Creek State Recreation Area, admire the majestic nature at South Beach State Park, take in the dramatic natural features at Cape Foulweather, and don't miss a visit to Boiler Bay State Wayside.
