What to Do on a Newport Getaway

From families with children to couples looking to reconnect, Newport is the perfect vacation destination for everyone. We’ve compiled a list of some of our top activities to give you a bit of a starting point for creating your perfect bucket list.

  1. Depending on when you’re visiting, there’s nothing better than searching for whales. There are generally two peak whale-watching seasons: one in the winter and one in the spring. Book your spot on an outing with Marine Discovery Tour to see if you can spot one of these majestic creatures.
  2. Another great adventure out on the open water is crabbing. You can enjoy this activity on your own by checking out one of our crab boat rentals or by reserving your spot on a charter with Newport Tradewinds.
  3. When the tides are low, go to the shoreline to see what aquatic life you can find in tide pools. Some of the best spots for tidepooling are on the north side of Devil’s Punchbowl and at Yaquina Head Interpretive Center.
  4. Explore Mother Nature’s beauty by spending time at one of the local state parks. There are several options close to our coastal resort, including South Beach State Park, Yaquina Bay State Recreation Site, and Beverly Beach State Park.
  5. If you have any anglers in your group, try a different type of fishing. Find a stretch of shoreline, and cast your line surf fishing. This is a great option for those that don’t feel like renting a boat. Stock up on any missing equipment at Englund Marine & Industrial Supply.
