lincoln city oregonLincoln City was formed in 1964 from the small communities of Taft, Nelscott, Cutler City, Delake and Oceanlake. There are seven miles of beachfront in Lincoln City. You’ll usually find the beaches filled with colorful kites, taking advantage of the winds in this city on the 45th Parallel.

Lincoln City is nestled between 7 miles of sandy beaches and a 680 acre scenic lake on the central Oregon Coast. And while it’s a charming resort town, it’s also a veritable paradise of beauty, history and adventure.

The mighty Pacific Ocean greets the beach along 7 gorgeous miles in Lincoln City. The beauty and activities along the seashore change with the seasons, adding spice and variety. There are excellent locations for wave, whale, sunset and storm watching, and the beach is a treasure trove for collecting driftwood, agates, shells and floats. Large rocks emerging from the sea create perfect pockets for tide pooling during low tides, and beach hiking, surfing, windsurfing and fishing challenge adventure seekers. 15 public beach accesses welcome those who wish to indulge!

Devils Lake, deep only in terms of Indian folklore, is 1/3 mile wide, 3 miles long, and reaches a depth of only 22 feet. Nine species of freshwater fish beckon the fisherman, while water sports such as windsurfing, waterskiing, knee-boarding and jet skiing engage other sports enthusiasts. Flowing from Devils Lake is the “D” River, which holds the title of the “World’s Shortest River”. From its source at Devils Lake, the river reaches its destination of the Pacific in a mere 120 feet.

Art galleries, factory outlets, books, antiques, boutiques, and assorted uniques! Where to begin may be your toughest decision. Lincoln City… where shopping really is a day at the beach.


You’ll find the usual Oregon recreational activities available in Lincoln City including beachcombing, hiking, camping, fishing, whale watching charters, kite flying, shopping and great dining in many fine restaurants.
