This community of 2,050 on Alsea Bay offers fishing, crabbing, and clamming and has a free crabbing dock. Bridge walks and nature walks have become popular. The drive along Hwy 34 to Corvallis is a scenic route. Drift Creek Wilderness, a few miles east of Waldport, is accessible only to hikers. A wayside at the south end of town provides beach access.

The “new" Alsea Bay Bridge was completed in 1991. The old bridge, built in 1936, was the first and only large coastal bridge designed by Conde McCullough to be replaced. The new bridge has a clearance of 70 feet, and steel and concrete piles reach more than 100 feet into the bedrock below.

At the south end of the bridge is Historic Alsea Bay Bridge Interpretive Center. Historic transportation and coastal bridges displays in addition to general visitor information, 563-2002.
