I also posted this on the Spirit Mountain forum.
I have tickets to a show at the casino on a Saturday. We thought it would be nice to drive in to Lincoln City early in the day and get a hotel room for overnight. The show starts at 8pm that night. We would then drive back on Hwy 18 25 miles. Do you think it's worth it? Is Highway 18 an ok drive at night? Will it take longer to get back? I am assuming that Lincoln City is the closest beach town. Too bad there is not a Lincoln City hotel that could pick us up after the entertainment.
Thanks for your help!
