Welcome to Newport, Washington

City Hall built circa 1913

The City of Newport, with a population of 2,114 is located on the Washington/Idaho border just west of the Pend Oreille River. With a comfortable elevation of 2,160 feet, Newport is a city that provides a unique experience of four distinct seasons.

We are less than an hour’s drive north of Spokane, which has an International airport for easy access to our city. From Spokane you can travel through Newport to ski resorts in both the U.S. and Canadian Rockies. Summers present an enjoyable scenic drive through rugged mountains and along pristine rivers. One can see an abundance of wildlife including deer, elk and moose along with wild birds including pheasants, turkeys, and at the right time of the year bald eagles.
