DAY TRIP

Just enough time for something amazing!

Whether you’re playing hooky or just want a quick and honest getaway, Newport has the perfect blend of activities for those who are short on time. One fun idea is to grab some breakfast, rent a fat tire bike and ride along the shore between Yaquina Head and the north jetty for an exhilarating morning. Follow that up with a late lunch and cold beer at one of our many local brew pubs, then meander down to the bayfront for a little shopping. Another perfect day may include packing your cooler, beach blankets and sand bucket for a relaxing afternoon on the beach followed by dinner and an ice cream treat in Nye Beach. Is the weather making a day outside not so ideal? Check out the Hatfield Marine Science Center, the Oregon Coast Aquarium, Yaquina Bay or Yaquina Head lighthouses, or, head to Aquarium Village for a variety of shopping and activities. Next, cozy up with a warm drink and delicious food at one of the many restaurants located on the bayfront and observe boat traffic on the bay or dramatic weather patterns right outside the windows. Whatever your reason for a whirlwind adventure, Newport has many exciting options.
