9:00 a.m. – Breakfast on the 101
Start your day with breakfast at one of the many charming and delectable cafes along Highway 101. Nelscott Cafe, The Corner Cafe and Pacific Grind Cafe are just a few of the local favorites for breakfast and lunch, but whatever time of day or whatever you’re craving you’ll find ample options on the 101.
10:00 a.m. – Tide Pooling and Rock Hunting
After breakfast it should only be a short walk or even shorter drive to the beach from wherever you are. Lincoln City is home to over 7 miles of pristine coastline with plenty of beautiful rocks to collect and saltwater tide pools for visitors to respectfully explore. You’re sure to find some fascinating sea creatures up close and in their natural habitat.
11:00 a.m. – Fly a Kite on the Beach
Lincoln City is known for many things, including its annual kite festivals that attract hundreds of locals as well as visitors from neighboring areas. If you’re not in town for one of the festivals, though, you can always visit one of the eye-catching kite and gift shops near the beach to get one of your own to fly out there on the shore.
12:30 p.m. – Pick up a Picnic Lunch
Stop by one of the local shops or delicatessens on the 101 for a sandwich or bowl of clam chowder along with any other snacks, drinks or supplies you need. You’ll find plenty of places to enjoy your picnic outside, and if the weather at the beach isn’t as nice as it could be then you can drive to one of the nearby state parks with covered picnic areas.
