As winter gets into full swing, the central Oregon coast town of Lincoln City remains anything but cool and still. In fact, February means a kind of mini-spring in most years: temperatures on the coast get almost balmy as winds decrease and sun kicks in on about ten days during the month.
Evergreen forests, broad sandy beaches, clean air, the magnificent Pacific Ocena and a lake at the back door - Lincoln City has it all. Folks from around the country and the world return year after year to soak up the Lincoln City experience.
While attending one or more of the many Coastal events near Lincoln City consider staying at a member inn of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild nearby.
The Lake House B&B - located on a 680 acre freshwater lake and only two miles from the Pacific Ocean and downtown Lincoln City
Brey House Oceanview B&B - right across the street from the Pacific Ocean, this brightly colored inn is in Lincoln City, walking distance to shops, the beach, restaurants and casino.
