The City of Toledo, pop. 3,580, is located in Lincoln County, Oregon, at the base of the Coast Range, seven miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. The city is framed by forested foothills and the Yaquina River system, both of which have contributed greatly to the city’s historic growth as a timber town and port city. Set back from the ocean, the community enjoys warmer and sunnier weather than many of the nearby coastal communities. Toledo’s downtown boasts many art galleries and studios, and a unique collection of independent businesses and restaurants that make the city an interesting and unique place to visit.
