Lincoln City, Oregon: Artists’ Community on Rugged Pacific Coast
Situated along Oregon’s coast, Lincoln City spans 7.5 miles of picturesque coastline. The center of the town’s art scene lies just a short distance inland. Seaside streets are peppered with dozens of galleries and antique shops, where visitors can see genuine Japanese glass floats. Grab a bite to eat at one of the town’s many seafood restaurants, which are known for their fresh catches.
