Tis the Season for a Winter Adventure! -- 11/27/2017

Come Visit Lincoln City for Some Winter Fun!

Lincoln City is not just a great place to visit during the warmer summer months but the winter too! During the winter there are many adventures awaiting you. Inn at Wecoma would like share a few of our favorites with you!

Join the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport this December all month every Friday and Saturday for the annual Sea of Lights event. Over half a million colorful lights and holiday decorations will surround visitors with the spirit of the season as they explore the Aquarium after hours. SCUBA Santa will be busy diving the Aquarium exhibits, posing for photos with visitors, and noting family Holiday wishes! The aquarium is located just about 35 minutes South of the Inn at Wecoma. http://aquarium.org/sea-of-lights/

Winter whale watching week is December 27th - December 31st. The Pacific Gray Whales are on their annual trek south to Baja Mexico to bear their young! Staying between a half mile and 3 miles offshore, the Gray Whales are best seen from elevated locations such as Cascade Head, Road's End State Park, or the bank at NW 21st street in the early morning. http://oregonstateparks.org/index.cfm?do=thingstodo.dsp_whaleWatching

If your wanting more of a closeup adventure try one of the Charter boats out of Depoe Bay just 20 minutes south of us at the Inn at Wecoma. Whale watching tours are regularly scheduled throughout the day, weather permitting. http://www.docksidedepoebay.com/rates.php https://www.tradewindscharters.com/charter-rates/

Storm Watching is also a great way to spend a rainy afternoon! Winter storms coming across the open sea from Japan can pack a powerful punch. The waves pounding the rocks on the coastline, dark ominous clouds rolling in, and the roar of the ocean is an experience that cannot be matched!  Whether you chose to be outside for the full effect, or sitting in a warm dry restaurant having lunch, there are several great places in Lincoln City to watch storms. http://www.oregoncoast.org/storm-watching/

After the storms are over and it is safe to go out on the beach, check out what treasures Mother Nature deposited on the beach. You will find agates, shells, and maybe, if you are lucky, you might find an authentic antique glass float! From December 30th, 2017- January 1st, 2018 100 special New Year’s glass art pieces will have dropped onto the beach by our local float fairies!  http://www.oregoncoast.org/glass-floats/

Ring in the new year with the Lincoln Pops Orchestra http://www.coastarts.org/directory/artists/l/lincoln-pops-orchestra-(lincoln-pops-big-band)/
at the Lincoln City Cultural Center. The Pops, a 25-member band that specializes in Big Band classics, Latin dance orchestrations and other feel-good tunes, will be playing from 8:30 to midnight Saturday, Dec. 31st, 2017. Tickets include light appetizers, four sets of live music and a midnight toast of champagne or sparkling cider. https://www.lincolncity-culturalcenter.org/events
