Lincoln City, Oregon
W E L C O M E     T O

Lincoln City is nestled between seven 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 paradise of beauty, history and adventure.

The mighty Pacific Ocean greets the beach along seven 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. Fifteen public beach accesses welcome those who wish to indulge!

Devils Lake, deep only in terms of historic 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, water skiing, 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.

Fly your own kite or watch the spectacular aerial displays of color and shape at the D River Wayside. Voted the "Kite Capital of the World", Lincoln City receives steady winds because of the unique location on the 45th parallel. Or, try the local golf courses for a smorgasbord of birdies, bogies and eagles. For the weather enthusiast, one of the greatest Lincoln City thrills without the chills is watching a feisty coastal storm from a cozy perch. Turbulent seas and howling winds set the sand and your imagination swirling as you peer into the eye of the storm. Storm watching is best during the winter months.

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

Welcome to Lincoln City, where the beach is just the beginning.
