Lincoln City vacation rentals offer the ideal launching point to explore the fun activities along the Oregon coast during the summer. The sandy beaches teem with life, and people come from far and wide to partake in family events on these windy, sunny shores. The most famous event in June is undoubtedly the Summer Kite Festival.
The Windsock 2016 Kite Festival runs Saturday and Sunday, June 25-26th on the D River wayside in Lincoln City. This event screams fun, with featured fliers showing off their kiting skills throughout the day.
The “Running of the BOLs” is sure to delight. Contestants try to run down the beach while tethered to a large donut-shaped kite that trails behind them. This beach is breezy, which makes this event challenging and filled with laughter.
Children can attend a free kite making workshop and then parade down the beach to show off their creation later in the day. You’ll also see some of the some of the most colorful “big” kites in the world. The event is fully accessible so everyone can get in on the fun.
You won’t find a better place to celebrate the 4th of July than Lincoln City either. Start with a pancake breakfast on Gleneden Beach and then wander around the craft fair. There’s a parade at 1 pm and then time to explore Lincoln City. Discover your new favorite restaurant and pick up a few souvenirs along the way. Of course, you’ll marvel over spectacular fireworks above Siletz Bay at dusk too.
For families with children over 12 years of age, there’s also crabbing and clamming clinics throughout the summer. You’ll need to buy a shellfish license from a local establishment, and some basic equipment the day of the clinic. Participants first attend an orientation session conducted by a local expert. They learn about regulations, harvesting, and cooking and cleaning methods. Then it’s off the beach at Siletz Bay for the freshest clams or crabs you’ve ever eaten, and you’ll catch them yourself. You’ll soon discover why visitors rave about the local Dungeness crab and the many bay clams found on the Oregon Coast. They’re absolutely delicious!
If all that isn’t enough, families can swim in the sea, paddle around on the shores of Devil’s Lake or Siletz Bay Park or visit a local arcade. When you’re traveling with your family, staying in a hotel is never ideal. Why not explore our vacation homes with all the amenities?
