Most people don’t start thinking about the beach until July 5th (the unofficial start of summer in Washington). But what if I told you that one of state’s best kept secrets is a charming little beach town just 2.5 hours from Seattle on the Washington Coast?

Nestled into high-bank bluffs overlooking the magnificent Pacific Ocean, savvy Seattleites flock to the coastal respite of Seabrook to disconnect, relax, and explore the magical beauty of the rugged Olympic Peninisula and surrounding coastline. And with whole-home rentals starting at just $137 per night, a Seabrook retreat is affordable for groups of all sizes.

Here are just a few reasons to plan a visit now:

Girls’ Getaway

Start things off right with a glass of wine at The Stowaway wine and cheese bar. Then literally head upstairs to pamper yourselves with a rejuvenating body scrub or mani-pedi at Spa Elizabeth. Browse boutique shops like SeaWorthy Home and The Salty Dog or try your hand at a sip and paint or pottery experience at Imagine That! Studio. For some seriously delicious food, order the Heirloom Tomato Salad and a gourmet wood-fired pizza from Frontager’s Pizza Co.

Romantic Escape

Treat your special one to a romantic escape to the coast. (Pro-tip: call ahead to The Stowaway wine shop and Sweet Life candy store to arrange for bedside bubbly and chocolates to start your weekend off right!) Most homes have stress-melting hot tubs for the ultimate in relaxation, or you can schedule an aroma therapy and hot stone massage at Spa Elizabeth.

Pick up a boxed lunch from Red Velvet Bakery for the perfect beachside picnic and sunset stroll along the sandy shore.

Get Outside

Park the car when you get there, and walk everywhere! Or better yet, ride in style with a comfy beach cruiser from Buck’s Bikes.

Feeling adventurous? Seabrook is the perfect basecamp for your Olympic National Park expedition. Explore the nearby sea stack rocks at Point Grenville or head inland to the mystical Olympic National Forest and picturesque Lake Quinault. Afterward, reward your toils with locally sourced pan fried razor clams and a cold pint from Seabrook’s Mill 109.

Work Remotely

If you’re like me, sometimes you get more done when you’re away from the office, and Seabrook is the perfect place to unplug from stress and distractions with a “workcation” at the beach. All homes have wifi, so you can plug in if need be (though I find a good ‘ol pen and pad of paper often leads to my biggest breakthroughs). The sound of the surf in the distance is sure to get you past that recent bout of writer’s block, too.

Fuel up with the best breakfast burrito I’ve ever had and a cup of Stumptown Coffee at Front Street Market to get the day started right.

More about Seabrook

Seabrook is a destination beach town on Washington’s Coast halfway just a short drive from Seattle—and without the need to cross mountain passes or navigate ferry wait times. Accommodations and homes for sale range from sweet little Farm District cottages to stately beachfront homes.

Designed around the concept of a five-minute walk, environmentally-conscious trails weave through wind-sculpted spruce promenades and cozy cottage homes to reach communal retail and common areas. While the primary draw is the beautiful sandy beach, Seabrook is also popular for its many amenities such as a central amphitheater, oceanfront parks, playgrounds, Town Hall, fire pits, tennis and pickle ball courts, horseshoe pits, heated indoor pool and spa, and the spacious Crescent Park.

These cold destinations are pretty hot this time of year

Winter in Seattle is a magical time for holiday lights, cool walks with hot beverages, and the occasional dusting of snowfall on our beautiful parks. Winter is also, paradoxically, the ideal time to get out of town. As the skies darken and the days get shorter, the lure of adventure tempts. Here are some ideas

Swimrun has become a popular endurance sport

Four friends are sitting around a bar in Sweden, sharing a few drinks and catching up. One turns to another and says, “Do you think we can swim and run 75 kilometers up the coastline of Stockholm?” After a few more drinks and perhaps a little chest puffing, a plan was set in motion. The…

Missoula’s Moment

The city is full of amazing wilderness and a sense of adventure

The wagon trail leading from Seattle to Missoula, Mont., is well-traveled. When Missoulians crave the city slicker vibe, they pony up and head west. When Seattleites want to slow things down, they head over the pass to Zootown, as Missoula is affectionately known. There is a kinship between Seattleites and Missoulians; we love our communities…

A friendly, quaint, and engaging small town

As Scottish novelist and essayist Robert Louis Stevenson said, “I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move; to feel the needs and hitches of our life more nearly; to come down off this featherbed of civilization and find the globe granite underfoot and strewn with cutting flints.” What the great Stevenson might…
