A town that survives on the sea, Newport's population of just over 10,000 supports a healthy commercial fishing industry.
Take a break from the city and head to Jessie M. Honeyman Memorial State Park and Thor's Well. Lincoln City Glass Center and Umpqua River Lighthouse are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Newport: Hobbit Trail (in Florence) and Lincoln City (Read's Homemade Candy & Prehistoric). There's lots more to do: immerse yourself in nature at Beverly Beach State Park, identify plant and animal life at Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area, and enjoy the sand and surf at Fogarty Creek State Recreation Area.
