Newport

Newport ©
A town that survives on the sea, Newport's population of just over 10,000 supports a healthy commercial fishing industry.
On the 24th (Sun), visit a coastal fixture at Yaquina Head Lighthouse, then identify plant and animal life at Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area, and then kick back and relax at Devils Punchbowl State Natural Area. On your second day here, cruise along Cape Perpetua Visitor Center - Siuslaw National Forest, then enjoy the sea views from Heceta Head Lighthouse, and then take in the waterfront at Newport's Historic Bayfront.

For where to stay, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Newport day trip planner.

Joplin to Newport is an approximately 11-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time to Pacific Standard Time, which is usually a -2 hour difference. Traveling from Joplin in May, expect Newport to be slightly colder, temps between 58°F and 46°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Mon) to allow enough time to drive to Cannon Beach.
