A town that survives on the sea, Newport's population of just over 10,000 supports a healthy commercial fishing industry.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Nye Beach and Devils Punchbowl State Natural Area. Change things up with these side-trips from Newport: Yachats (Yachats coastline & Cape Perpetua Visitor Center - Siuslaw National Forest). There's lots more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Oregon Coast Aquarium, take a leisurely stroll along Newport's Historic Bayfront, get engrossed in the history at Waldport Heritage Museum, and visit a coastal fixture at Yaquina Head Lighthouse.

To see more things to do, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Newport trip builder .

Vancouver, Canada to Newport is an approximately 7-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also do a combination of shuttle, flight, and bus; or drive. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Vancouver in August, with highs in Newport at 20°C and lows at 12°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Tue) early enough to drive to Cannon Beach.
