When visiting the Oregon coastal area, don't miss your chance to stay in a Newport beach rental, which features all the amenities of home while still allowing you to enjoy the gorgeous natural scenery. Rugged coastline beaches, lush forests, and diverse wildlife make Newport the ideal location for a central Oregon vacation. Additionally, the area boasts a great time for anyone in the family: Yaquina Head juts out into the Pacific and provides a great view of the characteristic rocks which are constantly battered by the surf. The lighthouse located there, Yaquina Head Light, is Oregon's tallest and second-oldest.
In February, the Newport area hosts the Newport Seafood and Wine Festival, an elegant event which has attracted visitors from all over the world since its inception in 1978. Other significant cultural activities include great concerts year-round, a touring youth circus, a local theatre and performing arts center, as well as regular music and writing workshops. If hitting the beach is more suitable to you, spend a day fishing, crabbing, clamming, boating, canoeing, or tidepooling. Just walking on the coast will be enough to satisfy anyone's desire to reconnect with nature.
