Bay Area Merchants Association

Lincoln City's Historic Bayfront Area

Taft is Lincoln City’s historic bayfront district, located on the southern end of town. Our rich past of logging and fishing is matched by a vibrant present. The events, galleries, merchants and artists gathered around Siletz Bay and Highway 101 make our part of town a key part of the Oregon Coast experience. Our bay has a forest of driftwood and bonfires almost every night. We have seals, clams and crabs, plus agates on the beach. We have galleries, artists, bars, fine dining and shops. We are the essence of the Oregon Coast. We are Taft.
