If you’ve ever walked up and down the Bayfront, you KNOW there are stories about every nook and cranny along there.
Well! History buff Tami Whittlesey has decided to make some of that history and other interesting, if not amusing stories come to life with her new business – Newport 101 Heritage Tours. Here is how Tami describes what motivated her to jump into the Bayfront with both feet!
Newport 101 Heritage Tours. My love of entertaining, blended with a history and tourism background has brought me to this unique venture. In collaboration with the Lincoln County Historical Society in Newport I have researched and developed a one hour walking history tour. I call it Bayfront 101. It is the essential history of Newport’s Bayfront. Not only does this tour represent what I love about this community but it is my way of giving back to it, too.
All tours depart from the Pacific Maritime and Heritage Center at 333 SE Bay Blvd.
