Lincoln City Area

Lincoln CityLincoln City, on the Oregon Coast, was incorporated on March 3, 1965, uniting the D' Lake, Oceanlake Taft, Cutler City and Nelscott. These were adjacent communities along U.S. Route 101, which serves as Lincoln City's main street. The name "Lincoln City" was chosen from contest entries submitted by local school children. The contest was held when it was determined that using one of the five communities' names would be too controversial.

Lincoln City is nestled between Devils Lake and miles of sandy beaches and on the central Oregon Coast. There are excellent locations for wave, whale, sunset and storm watching, and the beach is a treasure trove for collecting driftwood, agates, shells and floats. Large rocks emerging from the sea create perfect pockets for tide pooling during low tides, and beach hiking, surfing, windsurfing and fishing challenge adventure seekers.

Nine species of freshwater fish beckon the fisherman to Devils Lake, while water sports such as windsurfing, water skiing, knee-boarding and jet skiing engage other sports enthusiasts. Flowing from Devils Lake is the "D" River, which holds the title of the "World's Shortest River". From its source at Devils Lake, the river reaches its destination of the Pacific in a mere 120 feet.

Fly your own kite or watch the spectacular aerial displays of color and shape at the D River Wayside. Lincoln City receives steady winds because of the unique location on the 45th parallel.



Oregon Coast Summer Kite Festival in Lincoln City
Lincoln City

summer-kites-lc

June 22-23 2013

Lincoln City was named by Kitelines Magazine as one of the best places to fly kites in North America.

Lincoln City celebrates with three kite festivals each year, two outdoors and one indoors. Situated on the 45th parallel, Lincoln City is positioned at the ideal point for mixing warm equatorial air and cold polar air, which creates ideal winds for outdoor flying. In addition, the clean air flowing directly off the ocean is preferred by kite flying experts, and novices will see a difference in their abilities as well.

The theme for the 2013 Summer Kite Festival is "Tales of Tails".

Honoring the pod of life-sized gray whale kites that migrate to the festival.

A celebration of both professional and leisure kite fliers with some of the most colorful big "show kites" in the world. The event is on the beach at D-River Wayside in Lincoln City, Oregon.

Persons that fly in their world record breaking attempt will be entered in a drawing for 1 Free American Kitefliers Association Convention registration, compliments of the Lincoln City Visitor & Convention Bureau (Summer Kite Festival invited fliers are not eligible to enter the raffle- one entry per person) .

Find a Handcrafted Glass Float on the Oregon Coast around Lincoln City from October through May
Lincoln City

finders-keepersWhere & When to look for the glass floats?

From Mid-October to Memorial Day - hand-crafted glass floats being placed along the 7-1/2 miles (12 km) of public beach in Lincoln City, from the Roads End area to the Cutler City area. You find it, you keep it!

Floats may be found above the high tide line and below the beach embankment.

Floats will not be found in or on the cliffs. Please be aware of beach safety. Never turn your back on the ocean! Sneaker waves and the force of the ocean often move logs and can be unsafe. Floats are not hidden on the beaches during storms.

When you find a float, call the Visitor and Convention Bureau, 1-800-452-2151 or 541-996-1274, and register your float. They will send a Certificate of Authenticity and information about the artists who crafted your float.

Jennifer Sears Glass Art Studio
Lincoln City

LINCOLN CITY -- Can’t find a glass float on the beach in this city’s “finder’s keepers” promotion?

Buy one at most art galleries along the Oregon Coast.

 

Or blow your own.

 

The Jennifer Sears Glass Art Studio on Hwy. 101 keeps a furnace, two kilns, and two “glory holes” (reheating ovens) going five days a week for professional glass artists and novices who want to shape molten glass into their own artwork.

 

“Floats are the most popular,” says glass artist Daniel Millen, 43, manager of the busy studio.

 

So many people want to try glass-blowing on this particular week day, that it’s standing-room-only at the studio.

 

IMG_4290

Daniel Millen, partner at the Sears Glass Art Studio, explains the process of creating a glass float like the one at left.

 

 

All the chairs are filled in the waiting area/viewing gallery where many just sit and watch glass melt at temperatures of 2000F.

 

And onlookers are gathering at the big door that Millen has opened. It’s as large as a garage door, so lures gawkers from Hwy. 101.

Glass Floats - Lincoln City
Lincoln City

glass_floats

LINCOLN CITY -- Modern glass floats are so popular in this central Oregon Coast city that visitors want to know more about the old stuff.

 

Exhibits at The Jennifer Sears Glass Art Studio on Hwy. 101 detail the history of the fishing floats, tracing their roots back to 1840s fishermen in Norway.

 

Floats were used to keep fishing nets in place.

 

Glass floats were manufactured in Japan, starting in 1910, according to the Sears exhibits.

 

Old green floats mean recycled glass.  Red and cranberry are most prized by antique collectors because gold was required to achieve that color in pristine glass.

 

By the 1920s and ‘30s, fishing floats were produced in blue, purple, yellow and orange, in addition to the usual green.

 

Plastic replaced glass in traditional Japanese floats in the 1950s, so antique floats became even more valuable.

Lincoln City

powwowThe Restoration Pow wow is a gathering held celebrate the signing of the law that re-established government-to-government relations between the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians and the federal government.
