Cities: Newport

One of Lincoln County's main destinations for visitors, as well as serving as Oregon's oceanography research center with Oregon State University's Hatfield Marine Science Center, and its research vessel, the Wecoma.

Whether it’s Michael Jackson, or a guy with two pupils, meeting reproductions of Hollywood celebrities and freaks of nature are next door in the historic bay front of Newport.
