Located on the Alsea Bay, Waldport Oregon is a pleasant city on the Central Oregon Coast. While visiting Waldport, you are likely to see people digging for clams along the sandy shores. There are usually a few fisherman scattered throughout the area as well during the right times of year. One of the first things you notice when entering Waldport is the Alsea Bay Bridge that spans the Bay. There are walking areas on both sides of the bridge so that you can get terrific views to the east and west.
At the South end of the Alsea Bay Bridge you will find the Alsea Bay Historic Interpretive Center, which will give insight into the history of the bridge and the surrounding area. Stopping at the interpretive center is highly recommended. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. Because of its central location, the parking lot at the interpretive center also offers a great chance to explore the bridge and bay area.
On the south side of Waldport is Governor Patterson Memorial State Park. This park is perfect for having fun with your pets or a picnic. If you would like to set up camp, consider Beachside State Park, three miles to the south of Waldport. You have to love campgrounds that are right next to the beach, and this one won't disappoint.
