City of Newport, Washington

Newport, Washington
This "typical" old-fashioned town is the county seat of Pend Oreille County, Washington, and is the gateway to northern Washington, Idaho, and Canada. It is just located on the border of Washington and Idaho State, just west of the Pend Oreille River. It is less than an hour's driving north on U.S. Hgwy 2 from Spokane. Spokane has an International airport and it is very easy to access from everywhere in the U.S. Newport is the gateway city to the Pend Oreille Country. From Spokane you can travel through Newport to ski resorts in both the US and Canadian Rockies. In summer, it will present an enjoyable scenic driving course through rugged mountains and along pristine rivers. One can see an abundance of wildlife including deer, elk and moose along with wild birds including pheasants, turkeys, and at the right time of the year bald eagles. To get to Newport, travel north on Division Street, watch for signs to "Newport, Washington", and stay in the right-hand lane and at the Division "Y" enter U.S. Highway 2 which is also known as the Newport Highway. Travel 46 miles north to the City of Newport.

Visitor Information Center is located at the south end of town at: 325 W. 4th Newport, WA
