A "typical" old-fashioned town, Newport is the county seat of Pend Oreille County, Washington, and is the gateway to northern Washington, Idaho, and Canada. It is located on the border of Washington and Idaho, just west of the Pend Oreille River. The City of Newport has a current population of just over 2,000. With a comfortable elevation of 2,160 feet, Newport is a city that provides a unique experience of four distinct seasons.
Newport is less than an hour's drive north of Spokane, which has an International airport (GEG) for easy access to the 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, ospreys and bald eagles.
