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.

Lincoln City to hide Glass Floats and Glass Sand Dollars on the beach in February
Lincoln City

Glass Float in Lincoln CityBegun in 1999 to celebrate the Millennium, the float project has become an annual tradition. Each year the Lincoln City Visitor and Convention Bureau has sponsored Finders Keepers. Select glassblowers on the coast make special handcrafted signed and numbered glass floats.

Volunteers called "Float Fairies" put the floats out on the beach of Lincoln City, from the sands north of Chinook Winds Casino, down to the Taft area. It's up to the individual volunteers when and where. They are set in plain site, sometimes hidden behind obstructions, but easily seen and accessed. The thrill of finding one of these floats adds additional excitement to beachcombing.

Valley of the Giants hidden deep in Oregon Coast Range
Lincoln City
Valley of GiantsSome of Oregon's oldest and largest trees survived the logging of the Coast Range forests and live tucked away deep in a remote valley 15 miles east of Lincoln City.

The 51-acre stand of trees is appropriately named the Valley of the Giants, a fun place to visit during the autumn color season.

The big trees are the hook, but the catch comes in finding the valley. The federal Bureau of Land Management, which manages the valley, will mail a brochure that has several paragraphs to describe the driving directions.

Roadhouse 101 - Ty Curtis and The Insomniacs
Lincoln City

If you want to hear Blues Rock Funk and Swing with good vocals, good musicianship, and young energy, you need to be at Roadhouse 101 in Lincoln City this Friday to hear the Ty Curtis Band.

Ty_CurtisThe Ty Curtis Band recently earned 2nd place in the prestigious 2009 International Blues Challenge. The Challenge started with more than 2,000 bands in nine countries and 36 states. One hundred bands earned the right to come to Memphis, ten made it to the Finals and The Ty Curtis Band was voted 2nd place by a panel of judges made up of industry professionals.

Playing a mix of blues, blues-rock, funk and swing the band keeps audiences attention with a multi-talented line-up. The band’s performances feature passionate vocals and driving guitar from Ty Curtis' masterful harmonica and powerful vocals of Hank Shreve and three part harmonies with the added voice of bass player Milo Fultz. Milo’s tasteful bass lines coupled with Davis “Super D” Brown on drums lock in the rhythm that ties everything together.

Joe Whitmer, the coordinator of the International Blues Challenge, said, "I think they are a pretty tight and polished band. They are young, they do have a traditional feel about them, so I think they advanced because they play some damn good blues."

Perhaps the late great Paul Delay said it best about Ty Curtis: “He plays it like a young man should—straight ahead and from the heart.”

insomniacs

To round out your weekend you need to come back to Roadhouse 101 on Saturday Night (June 2009) and listen to the award winning band THE INSOMNIACS.

The Insomniacs seemed to literally explode onto the scene out of nowhere in 2007 as a fully-formed and functional unit delighting audiences with their joyous and highly contagious musical sound and irresistible sense of swing.


Their self-produced debut release "Left Coast Blues", recorded in the living room of bassist Dean Mueller, was quickly snatched up and issued on Delta Groove Music, hitting a peak position of No. 5 on the national Living Blues radio charts.

Critical praise and industry recognition from the blues community soon followed. This resulted in a 2008 Blues Music Award nomination for Best New Artist Debut, as well as a 2007 Muddy Award presented by the Cascade Blues Association for Best Contemporary Blues Act.

They play vintage instruments and channel a blues style from the 1950's, but there is a distinct new cyberspace bent to The Insomniacs.

These musicians, who have quickly jumped into the top tier of clubs, tour endless highways in a beat-up van, babying a gut-string upright, a 1951 Fender "Nocaster" guitar, a 1964 Framus Star Bass, and their Magnatone and Ampeg tube amps.

"The Portland, Oregon, group has that West Coast Swing sound down pat, performing tight numbers with original songwriting...There are no wasted notes and the music breathes with the palm trees." Blues Wax

20 million years old fossilized tortoise found along Lincoln Beach
Lincoln City
Large TurtleScientists think a fossilized tortoise found along Lincoln Beach may be 20 million years old. The domed back of the stone, which measures roughly 30 inches long by 24 inches wide, suggests it was a land turtle.

If they're right, it will be one of the biggest fossil discoveries on the Oregon Coast in decades.

"This is big," says Bill Hanshumaker, marine education specialist at the Hatfield Marine Science Center. "I've never seen anything like it before."  Read Article
 
The "New" Coho Oceanfront Lodge
Lincoln City

The Coho Ocenfront LodgeThe Coho Oceanfront Lodge (formerly the Coho Inn) unveiled completion of a multimillion-dollar guestrooms renovation. “With the renovation and repositioning, it is today a newly transformed oceanfront lodge offering the warm comforts of a home away from home, and the understated luxuries of a distinguished boutique hotel,” says Rob Lee, the director of operations at The Coho Oceanfront Lodge.

Led by a renowned interior designer, Ankrom Moisan Architects, the redesign of The Coho has restored this locally owned and operated hotel into a fresh, modern retro boutique that captures the beach palette, while bringing alive the coastal flavors.

“It always had amazing views, and after thorough research, careful planning and several million dollars, The Coho has been reborn and today is considered one of the best hotels along the Pacific Coast,” says Tim Crenshaw, the hotel manager. The Coho’s modernized and contemporary guestrooms now feature plush amenities and finishes such as gas fireplaces, 32-inch LCD HDTV, HD DVD players, Ipod docking-station clock radios, Lumicor glass panels, imported tiles from Italy, comfortable deep-seated lounge chairs, and colorful photographs of sea corals and other sea life.

Along with the facilities renovation, there will be a multitude of upcoming expanded services at The Coho, including in-room massage by Back in Touch, wine tasting/social hours, gourmet coffee service with daily fresh-ground Sisters Brewing Coffee, and free homemade cookies available in the lobby.

The Coho is also undertaking an expansion in June 2009, which will add 14 oceanfront rooms and suites, a lookout deck with fire pits and seating area, and a public lookout park to the south of the existing facilities.

The Coho is a member of the Oregon Q Care program, with 100 percent of its front-desk associates having successfully gone through the quality certification process.
