Newport, Oregon with Kids
Visit Newport, Oregon with kids for a fantastic family vacation. Beautiful, cream-toned sand beaches and plenty of activities for the kids.
Revisiting some articles I have bookmarked on my computer, one from Cascadia Kids seemed perfect to share with guests traveling with kids. This article dates back to June 2011 but most of its highlighted kid-friendly activities remain favorites today.
The author starts off pointing out that getting to Newport from Portland will add 2 hours onto your trip compared to Cannon Beach or other Northern Oregon beaches but Newport is a much more affordable destination and, in our opinion, it’s a beautiful drive with some fun stops along the way.
