ClimateThe weather in Newport is relatively consistent all year long: mild and wet. Temperatures typically range from the 40s to 50s during the winter, and hover in the 6os for the remainder of the year. Winter is typically the rainiest season, but savvy travelers will bring a rain coat any time of year they choose to visit Newport.
Things to DoThe ocean takes center stage in this coastal city. Lounge in the sand at Nye Beach or watch surfers take on foamy waves at Devils Punchbowl State Natural Area. Explore Yaquina Bay Lighthouse, thought to be the oldest building in the city. It is open for self-guided tours, weather permitting and there is no charge for entry.
Take the family for a day of fun at the Hatfield Marine Science Center and Oregon Coast Aquarium. At the aquarium, you can see more than 15,000 marine species, including sharks, otters, tropical fish and octopuses. The aquarium also offers hands-on cruise programs that allow visitors to look for whales or pull crab pots. Plenty of other local charter companies offer deep-sea excursions to fish for tuna, crab, halibut, and more.
Newport is home to many artists and the city’s vibrant arts community is also worth checking out during a stay in the area. The Newport Performing Arts Center offers world-class performances year-round, while the Visual Arts Center is the hub for fine crafts and art. The center offers workshops, classes and exhibitions for all to enjoy. You can expand your art collection with a piece from a Newport gallery, or show off your own artistic talents by taking a class in glass blowing, bead stringing, or off-loom weaving.
Food & DiningOf course, all vacationers should try the fresh Oregon seafood that abounds on local menus. Local Ocean Seafoods offers market-style dining overlooking the harbor and countless fresh grilled seafood dishes. You can also buy fish from the restaurant’s market, so you can cook up a meal from the comfort of Newport vacation rentals. Families will enjoy the laidback vibe at Café Stephanie for breakfast and lunch, while couples looking for romance will appreciate the atmosphere at April’s at Nye Beach.
EventsThere is a festival or event to enjoy in Newport no matter what time of year you visit. In February, head to the Newport Seafood & Wine Festival where fine wines and luscious seafood are served while local artists and craftsmen showcase their masterpieces. June brings the annual Celtic Festival, three action-packed days of competitions, Celtic foods, and musical performances. End the year with the Glass Float Treasure Hunt, which invites everyone to enter to win stunning Japanese glass float balls from local businesses listed on the Treasure Map.
Whether your interests lie in exploring marine life, frolicking on the beach, filling up on fresh seafood, or getting a taste for the local arts and culture, there is plenty to fit the bill in this charming city.
