Lincoln City was named for President Abraham Lincoln, as evidenced by a magnificent bronze statue of the president as a young man riding his horse and reading a book by artist Anna Hyatt Huntington. The city incorporated in 1965 and has become a favorite destination for coastal vacationers who enjoy over 7-miles of beautiful Lincoln City beach. Devil's Lake, connected to the D River, known as the world's shortest river offers over 686-acres of outdoor activities, including fishing, boating, kayaking, paddleboarding and more. Chinook Winds Casino on the north side of town offers dining, gambling, shopping, golfing and entertainment opportunities. Lincoln City also offers downtown shopping and an outlet mall.
