Central Oregon Coast Events Preview: Newport in January

(Newport, Oregon) – There is more to January than meets the eye on the central Oregon coast. Newport stays buzzing with activity during this month, even as it gears up for the massive Newport Seafood and Wine Festival in February. This month, however, take a polar plunge in the ocean, see a movie with a literary edge, enjoy some classical music and maybe even a sock hop.

Here's a preview of January's fun and frivolity in the central Oregon coast town of Newport.
