Why Lincoln City

Young Business People attending a meeting in Lincoln City Oregon on the Central Coast


If you could offer your company, clients, family and friends a meeting site where everyone could enjoy the Pacific Ocean, experience some of the world’s best dining and still get the job done under budget, wouldn’t you? In Lincoln City, on the Central Oregon Coast, your meeting play options aren’t just pre/post, they’re during! Outside your meeting walls is a backdrop of stunning natural views, exhilarating water activities, and a chance to get your hands into a new experience. When the meetings are done for the day, conferees can join their traveling companions in a plethora of transformative experiences – without leaving the area.


With no other travel needed and no activity expense, you and your traveling companions can hunt for agates or fossils on the beach, watch the sunset over the Pacific, watch whales and other wildlife watch you, smell the fragrance of the blossoms at the Connie Hansen Garden, fly a kite, build a sand castle, skate upside down on a skateboard, or visit the historic Japanese fishing float display at the North Lincoln County Historical Museum. From mid-October through Memorial Day, you may even find a modern hand blown glass fishing float or sand dollar on the beach during Finders Keepers.

With just a little expense, the family members can paddle the peaceful waters of Devils Lake in a kayak, canoe, or paddleboat; harvest their own dinner of clams, mussels, or crabs; ride the waves on a paddleboard or kite board or surfboard; blow a glass float or paperweight at the Jennifer Sears Glass Art Studio; go for a hole in one at Salishan Spa and Golf Resort or Chinook Winds Golf Resort; climb the rock wall or shoot down the water slide at the Rec Center; learn how to cook Pacific Northwest Cuisine; relax in the area spa and massage centers; or beat the odds and win a bundle at Chinook Winds Casino Resort.
