Chinook Winds Casino
Majestically overlooking the Pacific Ocean from the Lincoln City shore, the 157,000 square foot Chinook Winds Casino Resort is Oregon's premier Casino. Owned and operated by the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians of Oregon, the spirit of the Tribe is captured in the decor of the facility. Chinook Winds Casino Resort opened in 1995. The Casino includes a waterfall flowing to a pond (designed to resemble Euchre Creek, an important area to the Siletz tribe) where "wishers" can toss their coins for good luck and make a contribution to the Tribe's educational fund. The round lobby and weave design painted on the exterior give tribute to the tribe's traditional basket weaving techniques. Salmon decorate many of the interior and exterior areas, a nod to the fish that plays a special and important role in the history of the tribe.

Depoe Bay Spouting Horn
Aside from whale-watching and standing on the highway bridge to observe the boat traffic passing in and out of the world’s smallest harbor, the most popular activity in the cozy little town of Depoe Bay is watching the spouting horns!
Similar to blowholes, spouting horns can be seen all along the coast, but nowhere are they more spectacular than along the coastline at Depoe Bay. These geyser-like plumes occur in places where water is forced through narrow channels in basalt rock. As the channels become more restricted, the water shoots skyward under great pressure and can spray 60 feet into the air, more than a few unwary visitors have been doused by a spouting horn as they unknowingly pass by. Check out the video footage of the Depoe Bay Spouting Horn in action!
