And don't forget .. right next store is the Hatfield Marine Science Center. Admission is by donation only and the nature walk behind the center is worth the time.
Newport Old Bayfront-
Yaquina Bay Lighthouse-
1) The view of the Yaquina Bay bridge and jetty!
This quick stop off Hwy 101 gives you a bird’s eye view of
the bay and it is quite a sight.
2) Sand dunes galore!
Climbing over the rise of the dune, my husband exclaimed,
“It looks like a desert!” The dunes do seem to go on and on but it was
the fog that kept us from seeing it end and the ocean begin. Either way…
my boys loved running down the rolling sand hills.
Please remember tidepool etiquette as well: Avoid stepping on the animals and plants. If you peek under a rock, put it back. Also, never move an animal forcefully, you may tear off its feet or squeeze its organs.Check the schedule here to see when to go.
