Further south from some of the more popular Oregon coast towns such as Astoria, Seaside and Lincoln City is the town of Newport. Newport is a slightly less touristy town with some unique charm. One of the best features of this town is the beautiful bridge towards the south end of the town. There is also a nice lighthouse that overlooks the ocean. Newport is home to a large Rogue brewery/distillery that offers great daily tours of their facility. There are several excellent seafood restaurants right off of the beach and it is the home of the Oregon Aquarium which is an excellent place to take children. All in all a great weekend destination!
