Newport-The Gem of the Oregon Coast
Our little town on “The Coast You Remember” continues to be a popular destination for vacationers, retirees, and those simply seeking a more tranquil but interesting place to live. Newport has truly become as much a center for the arts as it is the Dungeness Crab Capital of theWorld due to our bustling fishing/crabbing port! With its own Symphony Orchestra, theatre companies, dance troupes and a host of artists, musicians, poets and galleries, Newport has become one of the jewels of the Pacific Northwest.
What other beach town affords the opportunity to take a 5 mile beach walk, see two lighthouses, arrive at a fishing/crabbing bay front, stop for lunch, shop historic Nye Beach, and then take in a play or symphony at a state-of-the-art Performing Arts Center all in one day?
Newport is home to the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration's Marine Operations Center-Pacific. We are also home to one of the largest and most successful fishing fleets in the country. Not only can you walk the docks and take in the multitude of fishing vessels on the Bay Front, with a license and a rented crab pot, you can catch your own crab from the dock in about 15 minutes.
There are so many things to do and places to see
in this small, walkable town one would need two weeks to do them all.
Should you decide to stay and become a part ofour wonderful
community, stop in and see me. My office is located in Historic Nye Beach right next door to Café Stephanie, a great place for breakfast or lunch. And, if you like, we can take a thirty minute tour of the best neighborhoods. I work and live in Nye Beach and love it. However, there are several other highly desirable areas in which to live as well. Why is Newport so special? Just stay a while and you will meet the nicest, most laid back people you will ever know!
