Trips To Discover, a digital travel magazine with a monthly readership of more than 1.6 million people, recently released its list of the “20 Best Beach Towns in America,” and Newport was included on that list.

With so many beach towns across the U.S., the digital magazine’s travel expert, K.C. Dermody, chose the towns featured in this list based on “a combination of summertime charm and pristine shoreline that makes the perfect warm-weather getaway.”

The website’s write up for Newport describes it as follows:

“Newport, on Oregon’s picturesque central coast, is a great beach town for families. It’s home to numerous kid-friendly attractions like the Oregon Coast Aquarium and the Hatfield Marine Science Center along the Bayfront. You can also watch sea lions and spend time on idyllic sandy beaches building sandcastles, flying kites, and all the other usual beach-type activities. Literary types will love it here too, with a bookstore on just about every block in the city’s oceanfront district, Nye Beach. While you’re here, you won’t want to miss visiting Yaquina Head, the site of Oregon’s tallest and second oldest active lighthouse. The lighthouse, which stands 93 feet tall, was completed in 1872, and built in a natural area created by lava flow over 14 million years ago.”
