Let's be frank: November at the coast tends to be pretty gray. The sun sets early in overcast skies, and rain gear is strongly recommended. But Oregonians like to play in the rain. Rowdy ocean waves can be a spectacular site for beachcombers, and who can say what might wash up on the beach. This is a great time for agate hunters and quiet walks.
But there's more to do in Lincoln City as well. Besides the Chinook Winds Casino and the Tanger Outlet Mall, you can find a variety of music, art, and theater. The Lincoln City Cultural Center and the city Culinary Center all have great offerings as well.
Below is a sampling of Lincoln City events for November.

The next three years brought regular performances at vineyards and tasting rooms as well as other popular venues. They traveled to all corners of the country, receiving warm welcome in Los Angeles, New Orleans, Rhode Island and Minnesota. They took their music, and their relationship, to the next level in 2010 when shortly after their marriage they launched their full band, The Blue Valentines.
