Newport is a borough in Perry County, PA, USA. Newport was originally known as Ryder's Ferry as it was the site of an early ferry on the Juniata River. It was later renamed Newport after the canal came through. Is a nice place to visit and find antiques, also there is a Farmer Market with a variety of local products and plants. A great place to go and do kayaking and fishing in the Juniata River. We enjoy every moment there, but is not our first visit. It was here where I discovered the Shoo Fly cake that I like. Little Buffalo State Park is very close so you can go there and stay more close to nature.
