Ten Cities: Lincoln City

The second of my series...ten cities I like.

Along the coast of Oregon, about an hour or so north of Coos Bay, is Lincoln City. It's not a huge or significant town. It barely has 7k in population.

I spent two entire days around the area back in the early 80s....mostly around the beachfront. It reminded me of some coastal town in the 1950s. It's not overrun with tourists or weird folks.

The funny thing about Lincoln City....was that up until 1965....it was three separate towns along the beach which kinda touched each other as they developed and grew. At some point in the early 60's....some folks got the idea of just making it one town....so three other towns basically disappeared.
