A town that survives on the sea, Newport's population of just over 10,000 supports a healthy commercial fishing industry.
Step out of the city life by going to Roads End State Recreation Site and Hobbit Trail. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Thor's Well and Jessie M. Honeyman Memorial State Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Newport: Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area (in Pacific City) and Darlingtonia State Natural Site (in Florence). There's lots more to do: admire all the interesting features of Otter Crest Loop, identify plant and animal life at Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area, and snap pictures at Yaquina Bay Bridge.
