Newport ©
A town that survives on the sea, Newport's population of just over 10,000 supports a healthy commercial fishing industry.
Here are some ideas for day two: tour the pleasant surroundings at Ocean to Bay Trail, enjoy the sand and surf at Gleneden Beach State Park, then kick back and relax at Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area, then see the interesting displays at The Historic Carousel and Museum, and finally look for all kinds of wild species at Bald Hill Natural Area.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, use the Newport trip maker .

Sandpoint to Newport is an approximately 7.5-hour combination of car and flight. You can also drive. Traveling from Sandpoint in February, things will get a bit warmer in Newport: highs are around 51°F and lows about 40°F. You'll set off for Coos Bay on the 17th (Mon).

Coos Bay

Coos Bay ©
Coos Bay is a city located in Coos County, Oregon, United States, where the Coos River enters Coos Bay on the Pacific Ocean. Get in touch with nature at Bandon State Park and Shore Acres State Park. Let the collections at Coos History Museum and Washed Ashore - Gallery & Workshop capture your imagination. Explore Coos Bay's surroundings by going to Bandon (Coquille Point, Whiskey Run Beach, & more), Port Orford (Port Orford Lifeboat Station Museum, Port Orford Heads State Park, & more) and Ophir Beach (in Ophir). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Coos Art Museum, hike along John Dellenback Dunes Trailhead, tee off at Watson Ranch Golf, and take an in-depth tour of Oregon Coast Historical Railway.
