Food Scene

Spectacular 10th story oceanfront views, wonderful fine/casual dining, with warm and friendly wait staff says it all. Parking is a challenge on rainy days if none is available adjacent to the Inn's entrance & restaurant West of 101, since you will need to park in the lot across the street and walk beneath Hwy 101 through car and pedestrian tunnel. Well worth the access challenge, even on rainy days.

At the very center of Lincoln City on NW 1st Ct (headed south on Hwy 101 one block before lighted intersection at D St). On beachfront about 10 minutes north of my home. Another spectacular ocean view. Locally sourced and always fresh seafood. Just click on their website's menu for the range of delicious and incredible looking and tasting dishes. Fished out, they also have steak. Opens around 11:00am

Only open M-F from 6am-3pm but great coffee/lattes/sandwiches/breakfast burritos for those in no particular rush, or who are possibly going or just coming back from a walk on the beach. Nice place to chlll and chat.

More spectacular views right at the water's edge, with fine dining included. This time it's in Depoe Bay (Whale Capital of the World or something to that effect) a 15 minute drive south of Lincoln City on Hwy 101. Sometimes might forget to chew, when looking out the window and seeing whales spouting both out there and also close in, near shore. If you want a good window seat be there at 11am when they open or call and make a reservation (never have, since always go when opening).

A different scene about 15 minute drive north but still in Lincoln City, closer to casino. This time a forest view for greenery and natural marsh below. Like visiting a BNB with tables and great food in every room. Never a bad meal starting with breakfast at 7am and if still in the neighborhood, lunch and dinner too. Kids welcome with menu to suit their desire.

Entertainment & Activities

Feelin' crafty at off peak season (summer)? About a six block walk from my home. Wednesday-Sunday (kids need to be 8 years and 46" tall) make your own glass paperweight, float, votive or bowls ranging from around $65 to generally under $200. Need to book a reservation and plan to cool it overnight on-site or can be shipped if you have to mosey.

Getting Around

About 15 minutes north of my place in northern half of Lincoln City. Does not offer car insurance so need to be sure your carrier covers rentals (usually based on vehicle size).

Seems like a strange place to find public transportation but that's exactly where you'll find it. Right in front of Ace Hardware. $1 each way does it for most of Lincoln City, on what is called the Lincoln City Loop Bus operated by Lincoln County Transit. Seven round trips a day from the front of Ace Hardware on SE Hwy 101 in Lincoln City north to the DMV which is north of Safeway and Casino, Just a six block walk from my home starting at 8:36am and returning at the Glass Studio across the street from Ace at various times (7) throughout the day until around 5pm.

Sightseeing

15 minute drive south of Lincoln City find the Depoe Bay, Whale Watching Center run by Oregon Parks & Recreation Dept. The whales don't seem to mind when the building is closed, they show up anytime.
