Lincoln City

Every winter, volunteers place 2,000 glass floats along Lincoln City’s 7.

5 miles of beaches. Lucky beachcombers get to keep these small pieces of art. If you don’t spot one on your beach stroll, you can blow your own glass float at the Jennifer Sears Glass Art Studio. Other Lincoln City fan favorites include Chinook Winds Casino Resort and Chinook Winds Golf Resort and the Tanger Outlet Mall for discount, tax-free shopping.
