Yaquina River

Yaquina River

Most people shoot down Highway 20 at 55 mph (or a good deal faster) and completely bypass Toledo, Oregon on their way to Newport, Oregon. Some day when your not in such a hurry, take the old road to Newport. Get off at Toledo and take Yaquina Bay Road (turn left at the Ace Hardware from the Hwy 20 business loop) into Newport. The drive is a little longer but much more scenic. Along the way you can watch the river, get a chance to see bald eagles, and a whole new view of the iconic Newport Bridge.
