Neskowin is a beloved little beach town nestled in between Lincoln City and Pacific City, known for its long, walkable beach, breathtaking views, and relaxed vibe. Teaming with charm (throughout the village are handmade, painted signs reminding all visitors of the 5MPH speed limit), Neskowin offers great dining, a seasonal farmer’s market, and a real chance to feel away from it all.  

Are you ready to book a memorable summer getaway in this charming coastal town? Let us help you! We have a lovely selection of Neskowin vacation rentals to choose from. Once you have booked the perfect home that suits all your needs, take a look at our list of top summer activities to enjoy while staying in Neskowin:

Nothing Screams Summer like Ice Cream from the Village Scoop 

Stop by the Village Scoop for a delicious scoop … or three … of Tillamook ice cream served in a homemade waffle cone. If your pup is along, they have treats for them, too! Open seasonally, please check for hours.  

Shop and Support Local Farmers at the Neskowin Farmer’s Market  

Enjoy a stroll through the stalls at Neskowin Farmers Market. Local artisans and vendors sell everything from fresh produce, local eggs and cheese, pastured meats, artisan bread and pastries, to original crafts, jewelry, and art. The market is open May 21 through October, on Saturdays 9 to 1. 

Try Beachfront Horseback Rides at Green Acres Beach & Trail Rides 

Green Acres Beach & Trail Rides Just a few minutes up the road in Pacific City, Green Acres offers experienced horses for riders of all skill levels. Enjoy a picturesque one-hour ride that leads you onto the beach, into Bob Straub Park, up to the sand dunes, and ends back down at the ocean’s edge. You can also take a ride on a real-life camel! Come meet resident camels, Frank, and Calvin, at the Green Acres Coral.  

Go Fly a Kite at the Summer Kite Festival 

The Oregon Coast is the perfect place to fly a kite with its long and wide beaches, and steady ocean breeze. In fact, nearby Lincoln City hosts an annual summer kite festival, June 25-26 – a perfect opportunity to marvel at a kaleidoscope of color looping and darting through the coastal sky. Stop by Winddriven Kites & Toys to pick up a kite. Head to the beach, and let it soar! 

Hit the Trail at Winema Beach 

Get outside and explore the stunning scenery of the Oregon Coast. Winema Beach is a 1.9-mile loop that is good for all skill levels and offers fantastic views. Another popular trail is Proposal Rock – a 4.7-mile loop, good for all skill levels. This trail is known more as a beach walk, but is a lovely way to start the day, or end the day watching the sunset. Leashed dogs are allowed.
