Historically, the Bayfront district was Newport’s economic backbone, housing a port for the commercial fishing and wood products industries. Today, this authentic working fishing village is an eclectic mix of entertainment, and continues to be home for one of Oregon’s largest commercial fishing fleets as well as recreational angling. The Bayfront is an area of wonder in which visitors can saunter through shops, art galleries, restaurants, fish processing plants, and family attractions with turn-of-the-century storefronts. Be sure to notice the creative murals of Wyland, Scott Kennedy, and other talented artists.
Set on the bustling causeway lining Newport’s Historic Bayfront – Mariner Square has long been a favorite vacation destination for travelers from near and far. It’s here you’ll find:
• Oregon’s Undersea Gardens
