Newport ©
A town that survives on the sea, Newport's population of just over 10,000 supports a healthy commercial fishing industry.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Yaquina Head Lighthouse and Heceta Head Lighthouse. Discover out-of-the-way places like Lincoln City Glass Center and The Edge Art Gallery. Get out of town with these interesting Newport side-trips: Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum (in McMinnville), Sandland Adventures (in Florence) and Cape Perpetua Visitor Center - Siuslaw National Forest (in Yachats). There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area, admire the majestic nature at Devils Punchbowl State Natural Area, enjoy the sand and surf at Nye Beach, and take in the waterfront at Newport's Historic Bayfront.
