Here in Oregon, we’ve long known how incredible our beaches are. The Oregon Coast is 363 miles of stunning shoreline, free and open to all, inviting everyone to enjoy its cerulean blue tide pools and craggy coastlines. It seems the rest of the country is catching on to the splendor that is Oregon’s beaches, with Lincoln City Beach named one of the best in the U.S. by the website TravelAwaits. Each year, TravelAwaits readers vote in the Best of Travel Awards to help determine everything from the country’s friendliest small towns to its best national parks … and beaches. Out of literally hundreds of beaches across the U.S., 15 were chosen for this year’s list — including Oregon’s very own Lincoln City Beach.

The secret’s out: Oregon’s Lincoln City Beach is one of the best in the country! Indeed, this Beaver State beach is a total treasure and definitely worthy of such high praise.
