Lincoln City Must-Sees

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.

Get on The Beach

Explore the beach. Find your path to the Pacific at any of the 17 Lincoln City beach accesses, west of Highway 101. 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.

Recommended time: As long or short as you like; be mindful of the environment and practice beach safety.

Glass Art Studio

The Lincoln City Glass Center is a mecca for glass artists, watch the swirling of heat and color as gorgeous glass creations like floats, paperweights and vases are crafted—and perhaps create your own. Watch local glass artists twirl future works of art inside giant kilns, crafting floats, bowls and vases or take part in a hands-on class to create your own beautiful glass art. Peruse their local gallery, and discover paperweights, ornaments and other unique creations.

Recommended time: 45-60 minutes, in addition to 20-25 minutes for additional glassblowing attendees.

Lincoln City Outlets

With sprawling lawns and winding walkways, Lincoln City Outlets houses over 50 designer and name brand stores to peruse. From Coach, The North Face and Gap to Nike, Columbia Sportswear and Harry & David—dive into the outlets and find what you need for your next great adventure.

Recommended time: Approximately 1 hour.

Mo’s Restaurant
