Eat, Drink, and Be Merry

Enjoying local food and drink is one of the top reasons why visitors flock to our summer homes and beach condo rentals.

There are many ways to enjoy this bounty, starting with the city’s wonderful outdoor Farmer’s Market that runs nearly every Sunday from 9 AM – 3 PM at the Lincoln City Cultural Center. If you want a more hands-on experience, you may prefer a demonstration followed by a meal at the Culinary Center in Lincoln City. August 17’s Slow and Smoky Demo Class, for example, features a menu of cornbread, Panzanella salad, smoked beef brisket, two different BBQ rubs, peach bourbon BBQ sauce, sweet & spicy BBQ sauce, coleslaw, and strawberry shortcake on homemade biscuits. Or, perhaps you might prefer focusing on the libations with a side of scandal at Lincoln City’s Gin & Sin Tour on Aug 23 starting at 8 PM, where you’ll visit three watering holes (with a designated driver) to meet the proprietors and hear some sinful stories form the city’s past while enjoying perfectly paired cocktails.

Summer Morning Matinees

Lincoln City’s Bijou Theater is known for its Saturday Morning Matinees, where classic films are screened in a classic theater for a low price every Saturday morning. During the summer months, this weekly event changes to the Summer Morning Matinee with additional dates to suit summer vacationers while school’s out. This summer season is wrapping up with The Lost Boys (1987) on August 17 at 11 AM & 10 PM and August 19 & 20 at 11 AM; The Secret of Nimh (1982) on August 24, 26 & 29 at 11 AM; and Annie (1982) on August 31 and September 2 at 11 AM. All shows are only $3.

Get to Know the Great Outdoors

If you’re in Lincoln City, you simply have to go to the beach. It’s what the city’s known for. If you want to get to know the Great Outdoors and learn more about the local culture, though, you’ll want to dig a little bit deeper. For instance, Finders Keepers on the Beach is a part of the Lincoln City culture where “float fairies” hide colorful glass orbs along the beach during designated times in a nod to the glass floats that once washed ashore from Japanese fishing ships. Now visitors have a chance to find their own glass float made by local artisans throughout the year. From now until October 12, you’ll have your chance to search above the high tide line during daylight hours for your very own float that you can register for a Certificate of Authenticity. Informative clinics, such as the upcoming free Crabbing Clinic on August 28 at the SW 51st Street Pavilion at 3:30 PM, are also a great way to get to know the outdoors in this area. The August 28 clinic will start with a brief orientation followed by crabbing on Siletz Bay. Now, the question is, what are you waiting for? Book your beach house rentals today and enjoy your stay in Lincoln City, Oregon.

Beachcombers are advised to follow strict beach safety precautions, wear good outdoors shoes, and to bring a raincoat, a pair of gloves, and a sturdy container or bag for collecting all your treasures.

Book Your Beach House Stay for Whale Watching Today!

With such perfect conditions this season, nature-lovers ought to book their Lincoln City beach vacation rentals today and catch the exciting whale watching down in Depoe Bay. This quaint bay on the Central Oregon coast is known as “the whale watching capital” and is only a short drive from all of our beach vacation rentals. Lincoln City and its 7½ miles of beautiful beaches and countless amenities are perfectly positioned for whale watchers heading out for their morning expeditions. Whale-watching excursions leave from Depoe Bay every day when weather permits for roughly 10 months out of the year, and spring brings clearer and calmer days to see more whales. Keep reading to learn more about the whale-watching possibilities along Oregon’s majestic coastline this spring.

Spring Brings Whales in Mid-Migration

The beautiful Pacific Gray Whale is the most commonly spotted on the Central Oregon Coast. The whale-watching season typically runs from December to October, but there are two parts of the season. From December to May, Pacific Gray Wales in the midst of their migration are constantly passing through the Oregon Coast. Most whales spotted in the spring are on the northern end of their migration path, but there are also some heading south. By mid to late May, however, you can also catch the approximately 20 “resident whales” that return every year to Depoe Bay.

Pacific Gray Whales tend to stay around Depoe Bay for extended periods when they are in the midst of their northern migration. This is because their migration is so long – all the way from the Bering Sea between Asia and North America down to Mexico’s Baja Peninsula and Sea of Cortez before heading north again. As they head down, many of the cows (female whales) are pregnant. The cows eat very little in order to reach their destination in the warm lagoons of Baja to give birth, as their calves are not born with enough blubber to survive in cold waters. On the way back up north for summer, though, the emaciated female cows will stop and stay for a while to fill up their bellies and regain their blubber in Depoe Bay.

Stay and Play after a Whale-Watching Day

Whether you choose one of our large coastal houses or cozy beach condo rentals, Lincoln City, Oregon will put you in a perfect position to see your share of migrating or resident whales. And why not extend your stay after whale-watching day? There are countless attractions that bring visitors to Lincoln City, Depoe Bay and the surrounding areas throughout the year. The coast alone can offer days of activities from long walks and pleasant picnics to kite festivals and chili cook-offs to crabbing and clamming clinics so you can catch your own dinner and cook it up in the gourmet kitchen of your beach rental home. If culinary delights are your thing, you’ll also find a wide range of restaurants, wine bars and even fun cooking classes with acclaimed chefs that include a delicious meal at the end. The Lincoln City Cultural Center and Culinary Center are great places to start.

Just don’t wait too long to book your rental home and plan your whale-watching day, then discover all the other activities to round out your stay. Lincoln City and Depoe Bay are home to some of the most beautiful natural spaces and creatures along the Oregon Coast. Whales are just the beginning – and what a beginning they are!
