Sea Lion Caves is America’s largest sea caves. It is a natural wonder, with the main cave more than twelve stories tall and a football field long.  The group of caves t is called “Sea Lion Caves” because it is the year-round home for the wonderful and entertaining sea lion. But the sea lions are always in the cave. In fact, they spend the majority of the spring and summer on the rocks outside the cave along the coast. 

But that means that if you come in the winter, you’ll be treated to the sight of hundreds of sea lions all around the caves.

What a wonderful way to spend a day or two when at Oregon coast vacation rentals!

But sea lions aren’t the only wildlife that you’ll have a chance to see when you’re at Sea Lion Caves.

Whale Off the Oregon Coast

But not only will you see sea lions in Sea Lion Caves, you’ll also be able to observe many sea birds as they fly in and out of the cave, plus, if you’re there at the right time, you’ll even see some whales off the coast. 

Now, Sea Lion Caves does require a bit of walking up and down hills and sets of stairs, so if you go there from Oregon beach vacation rentals, be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes. But the sights and sounds will be very worth the effort. 

Sea Lion Caves is open year-round, except Thanksgiving and Christmas, but you should check their website or call ahead to make sure they’re open, and what might be going on. 

It’s just one more reason to look for beach condo rentals in Lincoln City, Oregon!

Oregon Beach Rentals Wagon

This tour, which is not available this year due to COVID, begins at the museum, then takes you on a journey over to the Taft Pioneer Cemetery. 

Many very early residents of Lincoln City are buried in this historic cemetery — the land for it was donated by, of course, Mr. Bones. And when the official tours are offered, actors and actresses aid in the tour experience by playing the part of some of these early residents, telling their stories, and helping history… come back to life.

There is a mountain man who was a friend and correspondent with major political figures — including Harry Truman. There is a Native American woman who helped the earliest settlers to survive and thrive on the Oregon coast. And more — like a couple who moved to the area way back in 1897.

Lincoln City’s Coastal Air Quality Offers Guests a Place to Breathe

While the air quality throughout much of Oregon remains unhealthy, the team at A1 Beach Rentals is pleased to report breathable air in and around our beach house rentals. Lincoln City, Oregon is currently experiencing air quality considered “moderate” to “good” with the Air Quality Index (AQI) forecast predicting an AQI as low as 17 in the coming days. To put things in perspective, many localities throughout the state of Oregon have recently experienced air quality readings between 300-500 on the AQI scale and remain dangerously smokey. Thanks to the onshore flow returning to the coast, one of the best places to be in Oregon is one of A1’s beach vacation rentals. Lincoln City is truly offering local Oregonians a place to breathe.   

Lincoln City Becomes the Place to Escape the Smoke

Many evacuees that came to Lincoln City to flee the fires in nearby towns including Otis and Rose Lodge have found that the air quality here is making it possible to rest, relax, and even enjoy some outdoor activities without discomfort or health concerns. There are still concerns about the Echo Mountain Complex Fires in Lincoln County, but firefighters have been able to maintain the fire line from spreading further and evacuation orders have either been lifted or downgraded throughout Lincoln City. It’s now possible for locals to go for walks, visit the beach, and enjoy local cuisine. Authorities are still encouraging non-locals to wait until the fires are contained to vacation in Lincoln City, but with weather cooling down and precipitation on the way, it’s safe to say visitors can once again book a stay here within the coming weeks. 

Lincoln City Beaches Will Provide a Respite this Fall

And if sunbathing is your thing, head straight up to the second observation deck to soak in as many rays as possible.  

One of the best things about staying at The Nantucket is the ideal location.

Honored guests, we are overjoyed to announce our beachfront

Agates: Semiprecious Stones from the Sea

Semiprecious stones include such natural wonders such as amber, aquamarine, emerald, jade, onyx, opal, pearl, topaz, turquoise, and many others. While most semiprecious stones are formed on land, others – such as pearls – are formed in the sea. Agates are unique because they are formed on land within holes inside volcanic rocks (similar to moganite and quartz), but because they form near the sea, they are first released into the water from nearby crumbling rocks. Then it’s only a matter of time until they wash up onto the shores of Oregon and Northern California. While most agates aren’t worth a whole lot of money, they are stunning to look at and can be used to make unique pieces of jewelry and other beautiful creations. It’s also just a whole lot of fun to hunt for them!

Not All Beaches Are Equal for Agate Hunters

Lincoln City has long been known as one of the best places on the Oregon Coast to hunt for agates, coral, and jasper. Even the experts at Oregon State University agree. With lodging options ranging from cozy beach condo rentals to vacation homes that sleep 16 people, your whole crew will also be accommodated in Lincoln City. If you’re looking to visit a few areas in your search for agates, Lincoln City is also a great place to start. Your best bet is to head south and stop at Beverly Beach and Moolack Beach (which are also known for fossilized mollusk and clamshells) before continuing on to Depoe Bay and Newport. Depoe Bay is a particularly good place for a day trip, as it is also known as the “Whale Watching Capital of the Oregon Coast.” But you don’t need to leave Lincoln City and its 7½ miles of pristine beaches to see all sorts of sea creatures and find all sorts of sea treasures that have washed ashore. You could spend days just exploring this particular stretch of coastline. Lincoln City’s intertidal zones, where tide pools thrive, are also particularly wondrous around Roads End State Park in the north side of town. While there are still plenty of bookings available, it’s a good idea to act fast if you want to get your perfect beach house rental in Lincoln City this summer. The secret will soon be out that this is one of the best places to get away from it all on the Oregon Coast. Whether you’re most looking forward to hunting for agates, exploring the tidepools, or just enjoying a cool beverage from a hot tub with ocean views on the deck of your rental, A1 Beach Rentals has got you covered.

Lincoln City’s Native American History

The Oregon Coast was originally home to many tribes that are now part of the 27-member Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians along with other Native American tribes and bands that once lived between Northern California and southwest Washington. When the Coast (Siletz) Reservation was established in 1855, it included part of modern-day Lincoln City. These 27 tribes spoke numerous languages, including the Clatsop dialect of Chinook, Coos, Shasta, Siuslaw, Takelma, Tillamook, and many others. Some of these names might be familiar if you live in the Pacific Northwest or have ever visited our Oregon beach house rentals. Lincoln City locals and visitors should also recognize the name of Siletz Bay.

The Communities Before Lincoln City’s Incorporation

Lincoln City did not exist until 1965 when the unincorporated communities of Delake, Oceanlake, and Taft joined with the nearby towns of Cutler City and Nelscott, all of which were nestled around Lincoln City’s current main street (Highway 101). Homesteaders began arriving in the area as early as the 1880s, though, and Taft (named after our 27th President, William H. Taft) established its post office in 1906. Delake was founded some years after and established its post office in 1924, only to be reestablished as Oceanlake Post Office in 1927. The odd-sounding name of Delake is meant to mimic local Finnish community members’ pronunciation of nearby Devil’s Lake. The former town of Nelscott also had a unique name, which was a combination of the founders’ surnames, Nelson and Scott. The Nelscott Reef is still famed as one of the best spots to surf along the Pacific Coast. Cutler City, which was located on the east shore of Siletz Bay, was the biggest established town in the area that later became Lincoln City. Mr. and Mrs. George Cutler of Dallas founded the community in the early 20th century, supposedly after Chief Charles “Charley” DePoe of the Siletz Tribe sold the property to George Cutler. The town established a post office in 1930 that served the community until Lincoln City was formed.

The Modern History of Lincoln City, Oregon

Each of these historic communities had its own annual events and local culture, and there was even some competition among them for tourists and trade. They all needed local services such as police and firefighters, though, and while it seemed to make sense to combine and pool these resources, many people did not want to give up their local post office and unique heritage. That’s why they needed to come up with a new, unifying name when the towns and communities did finally incorporate, rather than using any of the five existing names. They held a contest to choose one and school children submitted the name of Lincoln City. It seemed like the best choice when the city was incorporated on March 3, 1965.

History of Glass Floats on the Beach

You probably know about Glass Floats on the Beach if you’ve ever stayed in one of our vacation homes or beach condo rentals. Lincoln City has not only been a hotspot for beaches, but also for arts and crafts such as glassblowing, since the 20th century. When that century was drawing to a close, a local artist decided to use this medium to celebrate the coming millennium with a nod to the Oregon Coast’s past. Japanese fishing boats of bygone eras once used beautiful blue and green glass fishing floats that often washed up on the shores of the Oregon Coast, and visitors in those eras used to love hunting for the glass treasures that would wash ashore. Eventually, they were all found … until 1999, that is, when Lincoln City sponsored the Finders Keepers project where local artists produced stunning blown-glass floats that were “hidden” around the beach. It was so popular and attracted so many tourists that it became part of the city’s local traditions. The beaches will be a great reason to visit Lincoln City once they reopen, and we look forward to welcoming you to our beach house rentals! Until then, this area’s fascinating history is worth learning more about. It’s easy to see why so many people wanted to live in this beautiful part of the Central Oregon Coast.
