The Town of Newport is the friendly, welcoming “handshake” to the Crystal Coast, your primary point of entry from the west. Don't just visit, stay in Newport if you are looking for family fun at The Barnyard, an Agri-tourism experience, barbecue at the Newport Pig Cookin’ Contest, or hiking through the adjoining Croatan National Forest. This fast-growing community truly embraces nature and looks forward to sharing it with you.
