Be sure to visit the Art center to pick up a piece by local artists. Chowder bowl is a great choice for lunch.

Walked around with our dogs and enjoyed some clam chowder while sitting outside in the warm sun. Lots of little shops and a relaxing stroll.

This unique, historic area is a fun and interesting place to take a stroll. You can enjoy lovely gift shops, art galleries, a wonderful spa, restaurants, beach trails and a gazebo with a view. Even a perfect place to spend a rainy day, just bring your umbrella.

There are some excellent beaches in the Newport area, and Nye Beach is one of them! Great views, plenty of sand, and perfect for beach walking! Our son had a great time drawing pictures in the sand.

The sand is firm, so it makes for particular good castles, and excellent runs on the beach. There are large boulders and rock formations sprinkled in and high cliffs in the background. Not to mention views of... More

This is by far the best area to visit in Newport, Oregon. Most of the cute little shops and restaurants are located here. Parking can be tricky but worth the effort.
