    We went here while we were in Newport, Oregon. I originally thought that we were going to go to the Bay Lighthouse, but we went north instead of south. This is a very nice area with many things to do. The one thing that I can recommend is to go on a relatively nice calm day.

    Amazing view and fairly easy walk to location. Much more impressive to be in the bowl than to view it only. Make sure you check the tide times, so you don't get stuck in the bowl! There are a few shops nextdoor and a great place to eat. Worth the stop.

    Nye Beach is a small neighborhood of Newport and the most charming part of town. By itself - it almost feels like it’s own small beach town. The beach is awesome for walking and the area has lots of great eats. Highly recommend Stefanies Cafe for breakfast and Nanas or Sorrellas for dinner.

    We walked all over the area, trying to get about every photo angle we could. From the Lighthouse Trail, up the road a ways, you get a spectacular shop. I went up the Salal Hill Trail just a bit and got some excellent shots from there too. We did not go up into the lighthouse as it was jut too crowded. It is a beauty.

    Great place to take kids for a couple hours. Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum is cool for the kids! It's $30 a kid for the whole experience without games at the end. Takes about an hour and some change to see most everything. There's a boardwalk for a couple blocks filled with lots of souvenir shops with saltwater taffy, candy, t-shirts, hippy stuff, candles, kites, pet stuff, Mo's, other seafood joints, and a few bars. It's a pleasant place to spend time in Newport by the bay.

    We loved visiting the Hatfield Visitor Center! They have so many wonderful exhibits, for both adults and children. They have great touch pools. Octopus feedings, many hands on exhibits, again for for children and adults. We all (two adults and a 9 & 10 year old) enjoyed it a lot.

    What a beautiful beach here! We had a nice camping experience at this park- decent, quiet sites close to beach just watch out for mosquitoes at dusk! Oregon state parks are awesome.

    We wandered into the brewery after checking out the crab pier and bridge. I'm not a big drinker, so it was more for fun than anything else. The store is cool and the fact that it is buried inside the brewery makes it a cool stop. It's worth a look if interested.

    We took Otter Crest Loop which is a smaller ocean side road off 101 which in itself is an adventure with some pretty great views, and stopped off at Cape Foulweather and found the little building that is a lookout which we'd never been to before. The National Park woman who works there did a great job telling us about the whales that come by this area from the cold waters of Alaska to have their babies down south in warmer waters before swimming back again. It was rather amazing, she said, that on both the these journeys both down and back, the whales have eaten enough that they don't eat at all on the trips! She also told us about some younger whales who stay in the area around the Lookout until they are large enough to make those trips, and they are often spotted eating small sea life from the kelp that floats around in the water right there. We would have loved to see some whales, but it's a little past the time. She told us that April/May will be a good time to return.

    One of my favorite areas for beachcombing for agates, fishing, clamming and watching a beautiful sunset. If you go to the Wayside, you can park a RV and walk under the tunnel to the beach. Some of the other areas are not easy to get your rigs in and out. The one off Ocean View is smaller and I don't recommend trying. If you can drive down, it's worth it to watch the most beautiful sunset on a cloudyless or semi cloudy day.

    My partner and I went out onto the Municipal Crabbing Pier for some photos of the bridge. The view along the pier at the bridge is excellent.

    We took a family vacation to the Oregon Coast and stayed in Newport. My son loves anything having to do with pirates so we stopped her while driving around the area. He loved it! It's a fun shop to roam around in for a bit!

    Nice little market on the korner! Lots of produce which is always nice. We bought some of the best hummus from one of the vendors. Wishing I’d have purchased more.

    My partner and I walked out on the Fishing Pier for photos for the bridge and boats. It is a great vantage point. There were quite a few people fishing on a Sunday afternoon in August, as you would expect. There were a few good catches and someone actually pulled in a crab trap with a few in it. It was a nice walk on a nice afternoon in the summer.

    It was super windy on a late August Monday evening, but not the least bit crowded. We were staying in an RV park across the street and found this gem. My daughter had a wonderful time playing in the sand and surf.
