Editor's Tip: The best way to cap your 2-hour adventure aboard Marine Discovery Tours is to chow down on some fresh and simple sea food from Mo's on the old bayfront; they are an Oregon icon and a \"must-eat\" stop with a knack for producing clam chowder to die for!","post_name":"marine-discovery-tours","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.6302","lng":"-124.053","distance":"0.2","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/charter-boats\/marine-discovery-tours\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"670505","post_title":"Randys Guide Service","post_content":"","post_name":"randys-guide-service-2","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.63","lng":"-124.054","distance":"0.3","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/randys-guide-service-2\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"1661940","post_title":"City of Newport - Public Parking: Electric Vehicle Fast Charging Station","post_content":"","post_name":"city-of-newport-public-parking-electric-vehicle-fast-charging-station","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.6326","lng":"-124.056","distance":"0.5","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/geotourism-sustainable-travel\/city-of-newport-public-parking-electric-vehicle-fast-charging-station\/","terms":"a Sustainable Travel<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"460845","post_title":"Newport Marathon","post_content":"

Starting in Yaquina Bay State Park at the historic \"haunted\" lighthouse, runners will head north along the ocean through some of Newport's picturesque neighborhoods. This loop through the city is primarily residential with a few short gentle hills and turns at street corners. Heading back through the starting area, runners will proceed downhill under the Yaquina Bay Bridge to the Bayfront. Past shops, restaurants, galleries and a large fishing village, the course continues along the bay. Just past mile four, there is a short hill that rises about 40 feet then gently descends back to bay level where it continues for the remainder of the race. The course follows the Yaquina Bay and River estuary to mile 15 where it turns back toward town, retracing the same route. The gentle hill at mile four reappears at mile 26, and it's downhill from there to the finish. Along the course runners will be treated to a splendid variety of views and scenery, wildlife and shipping, fishermen and crabbers.<\/p>","post_name":"newport-marathon-2","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.6368","lng":"-124.053","distance":"0.6","permalink":"\/see-do\/events\/sports\/adventurecation-events\/newport-marathon-2\/","terms":"a Sports Event<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"5676","post_title":"Yaquina Bay State Recreation Site","post_content":"Yaquina Bay provides beach access and opportunities for viewing the historic lighthouse, visiting the interpretive store, viewing interpretive exhibits, taking interpretive tours, picnicking, fishing, viewing scenery, and hiking.
