This is a working harbor, always something happening. It was interesting to watch the fish and crab boats coming in with their catch. Wildlife view of a variety of birds and a few sea lions. We purchased fresh fish right off the dock.

After you find parking it's great. There are a lot of specialty shops so it can be fun for everyone. Make sure you hit "Mo's Annex" and get the shrimp and crab cup, it's a great snack you can enjoy while strolling around.

We were traveling down highway 101 and stopped at this adorable little town. We ate at Local Seafood which overlooks this adorable Bay. Parking is prime so snag a spot if you see one.

We were there on a Sunday in July, and I think eveything along the bayfront was open, but not everything in the rest of Newport.
