Description
Spread across a blunt, ridged peninsula between the Pacific Ocean and Yaquina Bay, Newport has been a resort community for more than 100 years. The charm of the turn-of-the-20th-century era is preserved in the Historic Bayfront district of town.
The Lincoln County Vietnam Commemorative Walk Memorial in Donald A. Davis Park is dedicated to war veterans. A sculpture is placed at 19 degrees northeast to cast its shadow across the granite each April 30th, a reminder of the day the Vietnam War ended.
The Newport Performing Arts Center hosts performances by local and visiting artists, including ballets, concerts and plays. For ticket and schedule information phone (541) 265-2787.
Newport's location at the entrance of Yaquina Bay has made fishing an important industry. Clamming, crabbing and fishing are popular recreational pursuits; charter and rental boats are available.
The Newport Seafood and Wine Festival takes place each year in Newport on the last full weekend of February. Thousands of visitors from around the world flock to the South Beach Marina parking lot just south of downtown Newport to dine and drink with a view of the sea. For more information contact the Newport Chamber of Commerce at (541) 265-8801.
A number of nearby day-use areas and campgrounds are scattered along US 101, a scenic highway that bisects Newport and extends along the entire Oregon coast.
