Soft, sandy beaches, an ancient art blending heat and glass into treasure, a sprawling marketplace with designer name brands, a warm, thick bowl of chowder and the heady whirl and zing of a casino gaming floor—these Lincoln City experiences are a must.

The sand is just a stone’s throw away from Highway 101 and easy to get on with our many beach accesses. Bring supplies for a bonfire, fly a kite or beachcomb for precious gemstones. You may even find one of our Finders Keepers glass floats while you are treasure hunting.
