A town that survives on the sea, Newport's population of just over 10,000 supports a healthy commercial fishing industry.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Oregon Coast Aquarium and Devils Punchbowl State Natural Area. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Newport: Yachats (Cape Perpetua Visitor Center - Siuslaw National Forest, Thor's Well, & more) and Florence (Sandland Adventures & Sea Lion Caves). It doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area.
