Waldport is especially proud of the Alsea Bay Bridge, completed in August 1991. Adjacent to the bridge is the Visitor Center, with displays and video material covering the history of the area, the building of this new bridge, and demolition of the old.
Fishing, clamming and crabbing are popular recreational activities in Waldport. There is a free crabbing dock open to the public on the Alsea River. Whale watching, bridge and nature walks are also delightful pastimes. A 9-hole golf course, Crestview Hills Golf Course, is open to the public.
Waldport High School’s Business Entrepreneurship class operates the WHS Kayak Shack, which provides guided kayaking excursions on the Alsea River.
There are a number of shops and restaurants, most featuring fresh local seafood.
