Get in

By air

Newport Municipal Airport (ONP) offers general aviation services. In March 2009, Seaport Airlines began offering twice-daily scheduled service from Portland to and from Newport. This service was canceled July 1, 2011.

By bus

A local bus firm called Valley Retriever runs a bus service to and from Newport, linking the city to Salem and Portland; this service is linked to the Greyhound network and can be booked through them. Greyhound also offer a bus link from Eugene.

By car

There are a few different ways that you can arrive in Newport by road, and here are the three main ones that any tourist should know about.

Get around

When it comes to getting around in Newport, it all depends on the weather. The temperature varies a bit from season to season, but it pretty much stays between 50 and 70 degrees throughout the whole year. When the rain holds off, walking and biking are huge modes of transportation, and they sure do save you some money too. HWY 101 would have to be the easiest way of getting just about anywhere in Newport that you wanted to go. If you take it to the South side of town, it will take you across the bridge to our famous Aquarium and Rogue Brewery. However, if you choose to see the light house or the bayfront, right before you cross the Newport Bridge, HWY 101 will also give you the opportunity to hook to the right and follow the signs that will lead you to the two destinations. All of the grocery stores and convenience stores are mainly located on HWY 101 as well, along with a few pretty good restaurants. A few other streets to look for while you're in Newport are:
