Aside from beach activities, the local landscape also offers opportunities for bird watching, cycling, eco-excursions, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, golfing, skateboarding, wildlife viewing, and more. Not to mention Lincoln City’s Connie Hansen Garden, the History Buff Tour and Haunted Tour, the state and national parks around the coast, daytrip destinations, outdoor activities for kids, and various festivals and events that take place outside throughout the year.
Get in Touch with Your Culinary Side
The Oregon coast is about much more than oceanfront property. Oregonseaside towns such as Lincoln City also offer various activities that feed your five senses, including cooking classes, cook-offs, and other culinary pursuits. Under the guidance of Executive Chef Sharon Wiest, the Lincoln City Culinary Center offers group and private cooking classes that celebrate the seasonal cuisines of Oregon, from fresh seafood, grass-fed meat and free-range chicken to organic fruits, vegetables and grains. You might even get to dig for clams, visit a farm, or attend one of the many cook-offs held throughout the year in Lincoln City, including the Chowder, Fish Taco, Jambalaya and Wild Mushroom Cook-offs.
Shop for Treasures That Last a Lifetime
Coastal Oregon boasts some of the most unique, inimitable shops and businesses you’ll find, and did we mention tax-free shopping throughout the entire state?

Just consider the glassblowing studios throughout Lincoln City, where you can purchase one-of-a kind glass art, or even create it yourself while staying in one of our beach vacation rentals. Oregon coastal towns also offer numerous art galleries and gift shops where you can view and purchase unique treasures to remind you of your time here. Chances are, though, that you’ll be back for more sooner than later, once you’ve gotten a taste of what this splendid stretch of coast has to offer.
