Place Description:

With over 400,000 visitors a year, the Yaquina Head Lighthouse is one of the most visited lighthouses on the west coast. Located just north of Newport in the Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area, the Yaquina Head Light was built in 1873 and remains an excellent example of late 1800's lighthouses. The lighthouse tower, at 93 feet, is the tallest of any lighthouse in Oregon. The lighthouse was recently selected as a 2004 Rand McNally Best of the Road™ destination.
