Lincoln City Oregon
Lincoln City, Oregon, is the perfect place to take your family for the rugged and rocky Oregon coast, with its stunning ocean views and little town stretched out along US Route 101. People visit for surfing and big wave kayaking (bring your cold weather gear--this is no tropical coast!) and the winds bring wind surfers, kite surfers, and two kite-flying festivals to the town. Of course there is deep sea fishing, too.
Prefer to stroll? Try beach combing, crabbing, clamming, tide pooling, and whale watching. Check out the museum which includes a play area for the kids. To make your visit extra-special, schedule it during one of the community's many annual events, such as the two kite festivals, the Siletz Bay Sandcastle Contest, Wild Mushroom and Chowder Cookoffs, the Artober Brewfest, Pride Festival, Clamming and Crabbing Clinics, and a Festival of Illusions, to name only a few. You can find and keep hand-blown glass balls released on the beach by local glass-blowers, a classic coastline keepsake. And don't forget to go antiquing! The Oregon coast is dotted with antique shops, with Lincoln City as the hub. And you haven't left the nightlife entirely behind--kick back at the Chinook Winds Casino.
Consider Lincoln City as a friendly change from busy cities and overcrowded parks no matter what time of year you plan to vacation.
