Newport

Newport ©
A town that survives on the sea, Newport's population of just over 10,000 supports a healthy commercial fishing industry.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Yachats coastline and Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area. Visiting Nye Beach and Thor's Well will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Newport: Devil's Churn (in Yachats) and Lincoln City Glass Center (in Lincoln City). There's much more to do: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, stop by Made in Oregon, and take in the views from Yaquina Bay Bridge.

For maps, reviews, and other tourist information, use the Newport trip maker app.

Minneapolis to Newport is an approximately 9.5-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also drive; or take a bus. The time zone difference moving from Central Standard Time (CST) to Pacific Standard Time (PST) is minus 2 hours. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Minneapolis in September, with highs in Newport at 64°F and lows at 50°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Astoria.
