Lincoln City is one of the most popular tourist destinations along the Oregon coast for vacation rentals. Spanning across only 5.4 miles with a low permanent population of less than 9,000 people, tourists flock to Lincoln City's rentals from all over the world every year and increase the population to well above 30,000 during the summer months.
What was once a long stretch of coastal towns including Taft, Cutler City, Wecoma Beach, Delake, Nelscott and Oceanlake, Lincoln City was brought together in 1965 to make their government stronger. Lincoln City, named after Abraham Lincoln, was founded by a group of school children who voted to rename the city so that the settlers wouldn't have to fight over keeping one of the original names of their towns.
With a rich and diverse culture, centrally located Lincoln City has become the number one tourist destination for people choosing to visit the beautiful Oregon coast and stay in one of its hundreds of local vacation homes. Located between Depoe Bay to the south, Neskowin and Neotsu to the north, and less than 90 miles from Portland, Lincoln City offers Pacific coast visitors the most unique experience while vacationing here. From great food and sights and plenty of activities to get involved in, there is always something new to explore while staying in a Lincoln City vacation rental.
The beach, thanks to government officials during the creation of Lincoln City, is free for everyone to enjoy while staying in one of our gorgeous and comfortable Oregon Beach Vacation Rentals. During Finders Keepers season (Mid October to end of May) you can stroll the beach to try and find a beautiful handmade glass float hiding amongst the sand. If you do, remember, it's yours to keep. If the beach isn't for you, there is always Devil's Lake, just a few minutes' drive inland, with a picnic and park area for the entire family to enjoy. Want to stroll the town? Located in the Taft district of downtown Lincoln City near one of luxurious vacation condo units, glass blowing is offered where you and your family can create your own masterpieces while being guided by the hands of an experienced expert in the craft. Interested in learning how to cook something new? The Culinary Center can help you with that!
If you get hungry, you can always take a stroll to Hwy 101 Burger, which offers burgers, fries, and soda and is located just a minutes' walk from the glass studio. Or you can head back north and check out the Wildflower Grill near Safeway or Momiji's Chinese Restaurant in the Tanger Outlet Mall. Shopping is abundant here in Lincoln City; whether you're looking for new clothes, or wishing to search for antique items, there is a store for you. If you're feeling lucky, try your luck at the Chinook Winds Casino and enjoy a nice steak dinner at their gorgeous restaurant afterwards.
The weather on the coast is a mild maritime and varies between the summer and winter months, but the temperatures usually range from about 60 to 70 during the summer, so remember to pack a little warmer for your visit to one of our cozy Oregon coast vacation rentals.
