My husband's job might be relocating us to Lincoln City. After doing some research I found the housing to be quite expensive. I was wondering if anyone could point out an area near by that might be less expensive. Also, if anyone could tell anything about the area. I have 2 young kids and want to know it is a safe area.. Thanks. Sandra

The housing is expensive in Lincoln City ther really isn't to much around there you might try OTIS. Lincoln City is a fairly safe town, but perpare yourself for long gray winters.

We just moved to a little community just south of Lincoln City. We bought the place last spring, but are only recently full time here.

Yeah, some real estate, e.g. on the water or with a water view can be very expensive, and has been appreciating quite a bit as more and more boomers want to be on the coast, and that includes not only people from Oregon but also Calif etc. It may seem expensive here, but it's cheap by California standards.

If you don't want to be on or near the water, prices can be a lot more reasonable. We are on the water, but we did a lot of due diligence (it took nearly a half year to find this place). Watch out for tsunami zones. The last big one was in 1700, and there is a 15% chance of a 30+ foot wave in the next 50 years. So you might think that you're fine if you're up on a bluff that overlooks the ocean, but then you need to be concerned about long term erosion. It does rain here, but not steadily most days, and you can get some absolutely beautiful days any time of the year, and there is a wealth of activities. The climate is very temperate, we don't need an air conditioner, and generally heat the house with just a small fire.

What type of employer is transferring people here? It's not like we have any major corporations here. Biggest employers are casino, health care, hospitality, retail, and government/education (not necessarily in that order).Now that I think about it, my guess is retail, cause many of thechains are represented here, mostly at the outlet mall. In any event, good luck and let me know if you have any more questions.

Two months into living here, I have yet to see any visibility of drugs or of a drug culture. Got to be here though - after all, it's the beach!
Having walked these streets, hung in these bars, walked the woods, walked the beach, met the people, seen the kids - the only really terrible influences I can see are the Outlet Mall and the Spring-Break crowd - both of which are also trememdous drawing-agents for the area.
The town is currently weighing options about deleting, moving, confining or embracing the "vacation-rental" situation which seems to be breaking-down neighborhood peace.
One cannot even garner a hint of Marijuana-odor walking thru the neighborhoods or backstreets - which I find to be unusual for a west-coast town of any size.
