The Yaquina Bay Monster In Oregon Just Might Be The Strangest Roadside Attraction Yet

Newport is a small town nestled in Oregon’s Central Coast. Its main attraction is the Yaquina Head Lighthouse, a gorgeous historical lighthouse that’s the tallest in the state. But there’s another attraction in this sleepy coastal town, and it’s equal parts strange and sensational, with a story that will send shivers down your spine. Located in Newport’s Aquarium Village, you’ll come face-to-face with the Yaquina Bay Monster. Or rather, a statue of the aforementioned beast. Nessie, the Yaquina Bay Monster, just might be the strangest roadside attraction we’ve seen in Oregon, and today we’re going to dive into the story behind this mythical creature.
