Long Beach, Washington

"Ocian in view! O! the joy" William Clark

Long Beach, Washington

Some weeks ago, we escaped from the city in the search of the Pacific Ocean, our destination: Long Beach.  Long beach is located in the southwestern coast of Washington, about a 3 hours drive from Seattle. 

When we arrived to the beach we knew it was just what we wanted, a place to relax.  It is a small town with colorful shops, interesting monuments, great seafood and 28 miles of continuous beach. 

We stayed at Adrift Hotel and I highly recommend it.  The hotel is in front of the ocean, a few steps away from the board walk and the Discovery Trail and a short walk to downtown.  They have the best customer service, the design and furniture is truly unique.   The food at the Pickled fish restaurant is really good.  We ate the best crab cakes and fresh crab. 

The commercial area of the town makes you feel like you are on a fair.  The town is the home of Jack, the alligator man, the "World's largest frying pan" (it is not the largest pan anymore, but is quite unique) and a giant wooden sculpture of a razor clam.

We spent most of the time walking the Discovery Trail and enjoying the beach.  We did a bonfire at the sunset and flew a kite that we bought on town.
