5. Crabbing and Tide-Pooling Clinics

With 7½ miles of stunning beaches to explore, Lincoln City is one of the best examples of the Central Oregon Coast. There are even local experts who are more than willing to share their knowledge of coastal activities such as crabbing, clamming, tide-pooling, and beachcombing at free clinics throughout the year. An upcoming tide pool clinic on July 19 (starting at 8:30 a.m. at Lincoln City’s Northwest 15th Street Beach Access) will give attendees a chance to learn about the colorful sea creatures that live in the rocky intertidal pools along the beach. If you’re in town on July 25, you can also learn more about the local beaches while crabbing on Siletz Bay following a brief introduction starting at 11 a.m. at the pavilion on Southwest 51st Street.

4. Lincoln City Farmers & Crafters Market

3. Finders Keepers on the Beach

Beachgoers from far and wide come to Lincoln City in the hopes of finding their very own blown-glass float hidden on the beach by “float fairies” between October and Memorial Day each year since 1999. The tradition began as a celebration of the new millennium inspired by the colorful globes that used to wash ashore from Japanese fishing boats sailing the sea around the turn of the previous century. The city will be celebrating 20 years of this ongoing tradition, known as Finders Keepers, by “dropping” 20 unique floats inspired by the new Explore Lincoln City brand along public beaches between Siletz Bay and Roads End on the 20th of each month.

2. Local Summer Festivals & Special Events

Lincoln City and its surrounding areas are buzzing with local festivals and special outdoor events this time of year. The popular Lincoln City Summer Kite Festival that took place in June was one of the most successful yet, but don’t worry if you missed it – there are still plenty of fun fests to enjoy! The Dory Days Festival in Pacific City, for example, will take place the weekend of July 19-21 with a fish fry, parade, and much more to celebrate the local dory fishing culture. The Annual Summer Whale Watch Weekend at Boiler Bay State Scenic Viewpoint (north of Depoe Bay) will also take place from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on July 27 and 28.

With a wide variety of hotels and beach house rentals, Lincoln City, Oregon has its fair share of accommodations for visitors to choose from.

There’s also a media room with WIFI, two televisions, DVD/VCR players, and a music center. There’s a good chance you won’t even notice these creature comforts, though, because beach access is just a few minutes away from the front door.

Amenities Galore

It’s true that beach access is the best amenity that money can buy in Lincoln City, but you’ll get a few more amenities to make your stay worthwhile at Seabird Cottage. It’s the little things that make a stay great, after all. That includes things like beach chairs, cable television, Internet access, utensils and cookware in the fully stocked gourmet kitchen, modern appliances such as a dishwasher and icemaker, washer and dryer, gas fireplace, fresh linens, and much more.

So Much to Do

You might find that the perfect weekend at Seabird Cottage consists of nothing more than walking and beachcombing during the day, enjoying the sunsets in the evening, and cooking gourmet meals with locally sourced ingredients in the fully appointed kitchen. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that! There is so much to do, though, if you’ve got a little bit of adventure in mind. If you’re looking to play on (or around) the water, there is boating, boogie boarding, crabbing, clamming, fishing, hiking, surfing, whale-watching, tide-pooling, and more. Local businesses also offer craft shopping, outlet shopping, golf, movies, sight-seeing, art, fine dining, wine tasting, plenty of fun for the kids, and a world-class casino resort.  What more could you ask for when all of this is available at a discounted rate throughout the end of summer?

WWII Sub Lookout Could be Your Next Beach Rental!

Did you know there are beach house rentals on the Oregon Coast that used to act as World War II submarine lookouts? That’s right, you can experience a bit of history and relax in style at vacation homes such as The Submarine in Lincoln City, Oregon. This is just the ticket to a perfect weekend away whether you’re a history buff or just want to experience the beauty of the Pacific Ocean right outside the door of a property known for its added style and charm.

The Submarine- Sleeps 2-4 guests (2 queen rooms). Sweeping Oceanfront views from North- South. Beach access and glass enclosed hot tub perched overlooking Surf & Sand on a quiet beach. Used as Lookout during WWII .Wifi….

Historic Home Above the Sea

The Submarine is a two-bedroom property with its own private entrance, deck, and hot tub that are separate from those of the Anchor condo, which is the master suite that sits above the garage. During WWII, the entire house was used as a submarine lookout due to its strategic views of the oceanfront. It is also possible to book the two attached properties together as the Anchor and Sub House. With two queen bedrooms, a comfortable living room, sun room leading to a private deck, and recently remodeled kitchen, the Submarine alone offers plenty of room for four people to live in luxury. You can step outside to the private, glass-walled hot tub or enjoy the sunset and views of surfers at Nelscott wave from the comfort of a deck chair. When you’re ready to hit the sand and surf yourself, it’s only 90 stairs down from the deck (with resting benches along the way) to an almost private beach with tidepools to explore and plenty of picnic tables and BBQs. 

All the Amenities of Home and More!

The Submarine is fully furnished and ready to go with linens, towels, a starter kit of paper products, cookware, utensils, ironing board, washer/dryer, and a full kitchen that includes a stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, and toaster.

You can take a walk and visit a lighthouse, or go beachcombing, biking, boating, kite-flying, tide-pooling, whale-watching, crabbing at Siletz Bay, or deep-sea fishing at Depoe Bay. The town of Lincoln City is full of surprises worth straying from the beach for, though. The Chinook Winds Casino Resort, Lincoln City Outlet Mall, gift shops, craft shops, antique shops, glass blowing studios, art galleries, museums, a golf course, a miniature golf course, a wide variety of restaurants, and other attractions are all nearby.

Seasonal Celebrations for Winter’s Solstice

Driftwood Public Library in Lincoln City is celebrating the turning season with a free Winter Solstice Celebration from 6:30-8:30pm featuring music, poetry, stories, and yummy treats to nibble on. You might also enjoy staying warm on this wintry night with entertainment and libations at one of the area’s excellent bars and clubs. Left Edge Jazz will perform at Salishan’s Attic Lounge from 6-9pm, the Snug Harbor Bar & Grill will host its Christmas Hat & Ugly Sweater Karaoke party starting at 9pm, and DJ Andrew Eternity will provide tunes for the dancefloor at The Beach Club & Event Center starting at 10pm.

A Festive Weekend for Family & Friends

Whether you’re spending the holidays with the whole family, enjoying a romantic winter getaway with your special someone, or taking time out with friends, Lincoln City will provide the backdrop for a beautiful weekend with loved ones as Christmas week approaches. Everyone will enjoy Saturday Morning Cinema at the Bijou Theatre on the 23rd of December, when the holiday classic ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ plays at 11am to benefit Lincoln City’s Warming Shelter. If you’re looking to laugh, then stop by Comedy Night at the Beach Club and Event Center from 8pm to 11pm Saturday for Amanda Arnold and special guest. There are also live music acts playing all over town this Saturday, including Sami Rouissi at Salishan’s Attic Lounge from 6-9pm, Bryan Nichols at MIST Restaurant & Lounge from 7-10pm, Ronnie Jay Duo at Black Squid Beerhouse from 8-10pm, and Brett Lucich at Snug Harbor Bar & Grill at 9pm.

The Calm of Christmas on the Oregon Coast

Restaurants, bars, and other businesses start winding down on the 24th of December, and Lincoln City is filled with a sense of calm as Christmas approaches. You can still enjoy the beach and strolls through town, though, and will even find that many businesses keep their doors open throughout the holiday. On Christmas Eve, Brett Lucich will put on one more show at Snug Harbor Bar & Grill, starting at 8:30pm. If you’re in town for Christmas but don’t want to cook, you can even visit Fathoms Restaurant & Bar at the Inn at Spanish Head for their Christmas Day Buffet from 12-7pm on December 25th, but make sure to call ahead for reservations. And if you still have energy to go out the day after Christmas, head over to the Ugly Sweater Glow Bowl Party at Olde Line Lanes & Kitchen from 6-8pm on the 26th, and make sure to wear your ugliest Christmas sweater!

Whatever you have in mind for your winter getaway, just make sure to act fast if you want to book one of the remaining beach houses or beach condo rentals.
