About Lincoln City
Lincoln City, a long string of coastal towns that merged together back in the 1960s, is usually regarded as the transition point between the Northern and Central Oregon Coast. One of the most popular Oregon Coast vacation rental destinations for weekenders, Lincoln City offers more restaurants, nightlife, shopping, and entertainment options than most coastal towns. Of course, that does mean more crowds, but there are enough hidden-away beaches and off-the-beaten-path hikes nearby to provide plenty of peace and quiet. Some of the finest restaurants on the Coast, both high-end and laid-back, can be found near your Lincoln City vacation rental. Settle in for a locally-sourced meal at the Blackfish Cafe, splurge on a luxurious dinner at The Bay House, or simply grab a makeshift picnic at J's Fish & Chips, in any case, visitors to Lincoln City have no excuse not to eat well. For post-dinner (or pre-dinner) drinks, the options include the trusty Old Oregon Tavern, a McMenamins brewpub, and the locally beloved Snug Harbor Bar & Grill. There are few coastal towns better equipped to entertain visitors on a rainy day. In addition to movie nights at your cozy beach house, you can catch a flick at the classic Bijou Theater, or the less-classic multiplex down the street. Try your luck at the nearby casino, and then spend your winnings at the massive Tanger Outlet Mall. For higher-brow tastes, visit one of the town's fine art galleries, learn to blow glass, or take a cooking class at the Culinary Center. Of course, the great outdoors is the real reason to stay at a Lincoln City vacation rental. Seven miles of sandy beach provides ample space for surfing, kite flying, sand castle building, beach combing, and birdwatching. Devil's Lake, just east of Lincoln City, offers fishing, canoeing, windsurfing, and jet skis (rentals available), or take a surfing lesson on the beach at Safari Town Surf. For a slower pace, head south of downtown to the historic Taft neighborhood, which provides a bit of quieter charm and access to the wildlife refuge at Siletz Bay. Or, get even closer to the wildlife on a kayak tour from Kayak Tillamook. Lincoln City is only two hours from Portland, and approximately an hour and a half from both Salem and Corvallis. The aquarium at Newport is only 35 minutes south, and the slower-paced beach towns of Neskowin and Pacific City are a short drive to the north. Yes, Lincoln City may be a bit more crowded than other towns along the Central Oregon Coast but there are some very good reasons for its popularity.
