Shortest River In the World Is in Lincoln City, OR!
They call it D-River because it was near the town of Delake and connects Devil’s Lake to the ocean.
It's more of an outlet allowing water to flow from a seaside-lake or pond to the shore, but Oregonians noticed some other community had the world record for world's shortest river for a lake that was near a river.
The tourism experts put their heads together, pulled out their tape measurements, and notified the Guinness Book of World Records that in high tide (when the ocean is closer) the D-River is shorter than the current record holder!
Because of the fudging, many consider the record currently in contention, but it's still worth a stop next time you're in Lincoln City!
