I was wondering if anyone could give me some information about relocating to Lincoln City. I have been a tourist there in the past but now am looking to relocate my family to the area. Any information or tips would be greatly appreciated. I am have a child to enroll in school so if you know anything about the schools that would be helpful too.

Hi lostinoregon. All I can tell you is that I LOVE Lincoln City. We are going to live there full-time very soon. We have been living there part-time for years, as we are finishing the remodeling of our house. I do not know anything about the schools, other than one of my daughters played against Taft High School in softball. (so they have sports) I wish I could help you more there. I just saw your posting and thought, YEAH, since I love LC. The setting, having a beautiful lake, rivers, and the ocean, right there for us, is breath-taking. I would say the only negatives might be the tourists and the lack of bigger stores for shopping. But, on the positive, the vacationers are usually very happy people to be around. "Where to Retire" just did a feature story on LC, including the cover picture. If you want the article I can email it to you. Although written for people thinking of retiring to LC, it also talks about all Lincoln City has to offer, and it really is a very "alive" place to live.

Smile Thank you

I would love to read the article if you could email it to me it would be great. Thank you. I have to admitt I am kind of nervous moving to the area. I have vacationed there many times but moving there is a little different. Can you tell me how bad the winter storms are? Any information about what I should be expecting would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. I will send you the LC article if you will send me your email. (you can private message me). Oh gosh, about the winters. You will get all kinds of answers to that one. Last winter was record-breakingly harsh, with at least 2 "storms of the century". I have never seen it that bad before. We had terrible wind and snow twice (that is very rare). During most winters, you can have gray drizzly days, but with sunbreaks too. The thing I love about the coastal weather is that it can change really fast. You can go from rain, sunbreaks, rain, sunbreaks, in a matter of hours. It can rain at night, but then be nice during the day. Also, at anytime during the year, you can have short-sleeve days. Our typical weather is mild. The best weather is usually Sept./Oct. when it is still nice, but the summer wind is mostly gone. Storm watching is really fun in the winter too. People do come over from the valley just for that. I just bundle up and go out and watch, or get some cocoa and find a cozy place to look out of the window from. It can get really wild, with hundreds of logs churning in the surf and being bounced around on the beach, and the waves are something. (that is not a time to walk on the beach though). Anyway, I love the changeability of the weather on the coast. It's never boring to me.

Hi
I know you posted a long while ago, but how do you find LC now? I am planning on relocating (at least this is my current plan) to LC because I love the ocean, rather have cooler weather than hot, hot, hot. Are the people nice? As an older single woman is LC a good place for me? I like quiet but not dull. Would like to become a member of the community. Thanks.

P.S. It is so nice to read your information because you are so positive -- too often things are very negative. Your enthusiasm is catching.

Lincoln City is not really dull, but the youngsters hate it except for the casino. If you are needing a job and you have one now, stay where you are.
