Things to Do in Newport on Spring Break

No matter how old your children are, there are sure to be several activities in Newport that will fit their interests. To help in your itinerary planning, we’ve put together a list of tried and true things to do that are sure to be a hit with the whole family.

  1. Spend as much time outdoors at some of the incredible state parks only a short drive from our Newport resort. Visit Yaquina Bay State Recreation Site to take in the splendor that is the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse, the only wooden lighthouse left in the state.
  2. Give yourself plenty of time to explore the Oregon Coast Aquarium. This 23-acre attraction is home to several animals, including fish, marine mammals, and birds. Make your visit extra memorable by checking out their animal encounters.
  3. During low tide, make your way to places like Quarry Cove or the north side of Devil’s Punchbowl to try your hand at tide pooling. This activity is a great way to get an up-close look at aquatic creatures like sea stars and anemones.
  4. Learn about the crabbing industry firsthand on a local charter. Services like Newport Tradewinds offer year-found bay crabbing excursions. You can also set out on your own by renting a crab boat from our marina.
  5. Reminisce over your adventures as you watch the sun sink into the horizon. There are plenty of incredible spots to watch the sunset, including Donald A. Davis Park and on a drive over the Yaquina Bay Bridge.
