Spring To The Beach

Spring on the coast is a magical time. We get a break from the short days and winter rain, getting to head outside and soaking in some much-needed sunshine. Come enjoy the flora and fauna with us.

Local hikes and scenery are vibrant in color, and it is truly a breath of fresh air for all. Everyone is itching to enjoy it.

Learn to Shred

Did you know Lincoln City has one of the coolest skateparks in Oregon? Skaters from all over the state come out to share this incredible 40,000-square-foot concrete jungle. Dreamland Skateparks first started this project back in 1999, and at the time it was referred to as “the gnarliest skate park in America" by Thrasher Magazine. It now has four separate bowls: The Moguls Bowl, The Cradle and Half Pipe (covered), The Swimming Pool, which features tight transitions, and the newest addition: The Snake Run. It’s an amazing place to simply grab a picnic and watch as skaters learn new tricks and shred around. Don’t forget your helmet - they're required for ages 16 years and younger, but encouraged all around.

Carve up the waves! Always wanted to surf but don’t know where to start? Not to worry, all three surf shops: Safari Town, Zuhg Life, and Lincoln City Surf Shop, offer lessons. The ocean is beautiful yet can be a dangerous place. New to the sport? We suggest getting the basics of water safety down before you start shredding. For those more comfortable, all three shops offer rentals as well. Wetsuits, booties, gloves, surfboard options, boogie boards, SUPs, you name it, they've got it.

Drinks, Al Fresco

The sun is out, it's time for happy hour, and Aces Sports Bar & Grill has the perfect backdrop of Chinook Winds Golf Course. Located from an elevated vantage point, this watering hole is a great spot for a beverage and snack while looking out over the course’s 18th green. With 28 rotating taps, wine and cocktails, they have quite the selection to choose from. If you are itching for that big blue ocean view, Kyllos is a no-brainer. Positioned on the northwest side of D River, enjoy signature cocktails, beer and wine all while soaking in the sight of waves crashing directly in front of you.
