After a few days in Portland, we took the scenic route headed to Newport. On our drive we ran into the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum. Trust me if you saw this place you would stop too.
The building above is an indoor waterpark! If you have kids and you happen to be on Highway 18 in Oregon, I think you should stop.My veteran was all smiles and so was Luna (the ice cream may have helped!).
After our beautiful drive we arrived at our hotel, Hallmark Resort Newport. Its a great family resort, and romantic too!
We went to the Oregon Coast Aquarium which I highly recommend. Before you head to the aquarium stop for breakfast at Cafe Stephanie. They have good coffee, complimentary warm scones and delicious breakfast, and its walking distance to the beach.
Simply ahhhmazing! This aquarium is so beautiful and the play area was fun too. The brass turtle had me at hello.
Our drive back from the aquarium to our hotel was breathtaking.
The remainder of our time in Newport was all about room service, beach time and movies. Plus our room had a full-size jacuzzi (Luna wanted to stay in the "pool!").
It was so hard to narrow down which photos to share because between my husband and I, we took 450+ photos! We created so many wonderful memories and these are only glimpses. I hope you enjoyed our Oregon vacation photos (here's part 1 in Portland in case you missed it).
Oregon we miss you!
