In the Middle of the Action

The heart of Newport, the bayfront, is home to a working fishing fleet, the dungeness capital of the world, some of the best restaurants, shopping, and views on the Oregon Coast and attractions for the whole family. The Bayfront, bustling by day and relaxed by night, is home to historic memorial benches, famous fishing boats, and historical landmarks that chronicle the story of the neighborhood. The waterfront location, with its stunning view of the historic Yaquina Bay Bridge, is an especially picturesque spot. Boutiques are located across the street from the main drag, which is filled with antique shops, restaurants, art galleries, and cafes. The active fishing harbour and its many fishing plants provide entertainment and an unforgettable aroma at times. Fish mongers will sell you the catch of the day all year.
