Old Town Newport - Newport, Oregon


A great place to meander is the old town, which is sided on one side by the Pacific Ocean. There are many fish processing plants, lots of restaurants, shops, and sea lions!

Yes, sea lions! There are many rock outcroppings and docks for the sea lions to relax and sunbathe. This dock in particular has a cage around it so if/when a hurt sea lion is found in this particular dock, the officials from the aquarium and the Hartfield Marine Science Center come, capture the hurt sea lion safely by lowering the door, take her/him to their facility for medial treatment, and then returned to the wild once healed. Pretty neat!
