Waldport is located where the Alsea River collides with the Pacific Ocean. The historic Alsea Bay Bridge takes you across the river just beside the Pacific Ocean. On the north end of town, the chamber of commerce offers a wonderful exhibit that outlines the rich history of Waldport. During low tide, you can comb the beach for tons of driftwood, rocks, shells, clams, and rocks. If you can't find the particular sea treasure you were after, visit one of many interesting local shops.
Expect a laidback vacation, and beautiful unspoiled beach while visiting this city. Waldport's less populated beach is one of the nicest contributors to a relaxing vacation. If you do manage somehow to unwind, and you want a little more adventure, you can travel south 25 miles to the well-known Sea Lion Caves. If you are really adventurous you can take Highway 101 north to Newport and visit their two lighthouse and numerous interpretative centers. Take a ride over the Alsea Bay Bridge and visit Waldport the next time you are on Oregon's central coast.
