Newport, Oregon is a fairly decent size beach town in Oregon about 3 hours from Portland, Oregon. We spent spring break there one year and did all kinds of fun stuff. Since then we’ve been back a few times for just a night or two.
Newport Oregon Restaurants
Le Maison – the best breakfast place in Newport!
Nelscott Cafe – amazing stuffed French toast, killer hamburgers, fried pickles….
The Original Mo’s – You can’t visit an Oregon beach and not go to Mo’s for clam chowder.
Starfish Grill – located inside the Best Western has super cheap breakfast. $3 kid meals and $5 specials for adults.
Newport Oregon Activities
Coast Park – Coast Park is the newest park and best part in Newport, featuring state of the art play equipment, a magnificently detailed shipwreck, and more. Located at 100 SW Coast Street
Oregon Coast Aquarium – This is the best aquarium in Oregon.
OSU Hatfield Science Visitor Center – This place is so cool
Ripley’s Believe It or Not – I’ve heard it’s been updated. Make sure this is true before you go!
Sandcastle Playground – best playground in Lincoln City
Sea lions are downtown. They are fairly easy to find, just ask someone.
Newport Oregon Hotels
Best Western at Agate Beach – We stayed here and our room had a mini fridge, coffee maker, and two beds. It’s on the beach and they have an indoor pool. Breakfast is not included, but cheap.
Schooner Landing – We spent a week here and really enjoyed it. It had an onsite playground and fire pit. There is an indoor pool and jacuzzi at the clubhouse. It’s up above the beach, so just a short walk down and you are on the beach. This is a timeshare so all units have either one or two bedrooms, a kitchen, and a living room.
