Newport

A town that survives on the sea, Newport's population of just over 10,000 supports a healthy commercial fishing industry.

There's much more to do: get curious at Hatfield Marine Science Center, look for gifts at The Chocolate Frog, appreciate the history behind Fishermen's Memorial Sanctuary, and kick back and relax at Devils Punchbowl State Natural Area.

A land of many faces, Oregon is at once a state of rugged rocky coastlines and deep forests, as well as vibrant cities and small towns packed with award-winning restaurants and trendy shops. With nearly half of its land covered by dense fir, redwood, and pine forests, the state protects varied plant and animal life inside three national parks. In addition to pristine waterfalls, beaches, and lakes perfect for a holiday in nature, Oregon also offers numerous urban tourist attractions. Portland, the state's largest metropolis, notably includes more breweries than any other city in the world, and its central location makes it an ideal base for day trips to Oregon's emerging wine region and many parks.
