WINTER IN NEWPORT

As gray days and storms become more frequent, it's a signal that winter has arrived. Experiences don't cease, but like the changing season, they transition to different types of adventures. That's the beauty of Newport, with every season comes new opportunities to explore and discover.

 

This winter in Newport, plan a visit to one of our holiday events and get some gift shopping done while you're here. There are dozens of local shops featuring unique gifts crafted by local Oregonians. Storm-watch from the comfort of your beachside hotel room, or one of our many fine dining experiences. Adventure out on the trails to take in the awe of the forest during a downpour. Bring the family to an indoor attraction, or plan a date to the Seafood & Wine Festival. Winter is here in Newport, and it's full of wonder! We invite you to Discover Newport with us this winter!
