Lincoln City, Oregon has so much to offer families and visitors! Often thought of as a family-friendly beach town, Lincoln City has always been a destination for visitors to indulge their senses. This charming town has plenty to offer locals and visitors, including hiking, fishing, and dining. Along seven miles of Highway 101, there are some amazing secrets you'll want to discover!


Devil's Lake State Recreation Area

Located off Highway 101, this lake is a haven of peace and quiet, with shallow bays and broad, sandy beaches. Visitors often ski, boat, fish, and swim in the area. It's named after a Native American legend stating that a giant creature lives in the water. 


Drift Creek Falls

One of the most stunning hikes on the Central Coast is to the Siuslaw National Forest's 75-foot Drift Creek Falls. A cable suspension bridge over the creek can hold up to 150,000 pounds and offers incredible views. The trail to the bridge is 3 miles roundtrip and is moderately challenging - perfect for older children and the adventurous hikers in your group. Pass required to hike in the area.


Amazing Food Scene

There are too many great restaurants in Oregon to count. AAA has named The Bay House in Lincoln City as one of its Four Diamond Award winners. This restaurant features Chef Kevin Ryan's award-winning cuisine and is located on the main floor of Salishan Coastal Lodge.


Rare Flowers

The Connie Hansen Garden Conservancy is a hidden gem - home to a magnificent Japanese iris. This flower, which was only available to royalty in Japan for 500 years, is still scarce. Take a walk in the garden and see this beautiful flower in bloom.

Don't sleep on this Central Coast town! It's great for a family trip or quick getaway - no matter your age! What are some of your favorite finds in Lincoln City?
