Have you ever wondered what it takes to keep an aquarium running? This week we give you a sneak peak, with a preview of the Oregon Coast Aquariums behind the scenes tour.

The Oregon Coast Aquarium is located on 39 acres of land next to the Yaquina Bay estuaries of Newport, Oregon. The museum has 250 species of marine life, is visited by 400,000 people per year and is ranked as one of the top ten aquariums of North America. This week, we are going to take you on a tour and explore the exhibits at the Oregon Coast Aquarium.

In this short video, we give you a preview of the exhibits at the Hatfield Marine Science Center to help you plan your visit.

The Yaquina Head Lighthouse is peached on a rocky outcrop just north of Newport, Oregon. The beautiful whitewashed 93 foot tower has been in continuous use for the last 144 years. This week, we take you on a tour of the inside of the lighthouse, learn its history, and help you plan your visit.
