Fodor's Expert Review Yaquina Head Lighthouse

Newport Nautical Site/Lighthouse Fodor's Choice

The tallest lighthouse on the Oregon Coast has been blinking its beacon since its head keeper first walked up its 114 steps to light the wicks on the evening of August 20, 1873. Next to the 93-foot tower is an interpretive center. Bring your camera and call ahead to confirm tour times.
