But you have to discover them first. Spend a quiet getaway combing the beach for hidden treasure, sample scrumptious clam chowders, and make new friends while flying kites over the Pacific. Hide away in lovely Lincoln City hotels right along the waterfront and start unravelling the mysteries of the Pacific Northwest—they sound like seagulls and crashing waves.
Hugging the coast just 90 miles southwest of Portland—by way of wine country—Lincoln City is never too far from the weird and wonderful “City of Roses” and the superlative sips of the Willamette Valley.

Between May and October, keep an eye out for thousands of colorful blown glass floats nestled in the sand by local artists during Finders Keepers—a local art event that’s all about sharing Lincoln City’s talent and history, one gorgeous glass globe at a time.
