What will you be doing for your dad this Father’s Day?
For many, we send a card, a small gift or head over for a BBQ in the backyard, but isn’t it time we did something unexpected and awesome? This Father’s Day, break up the predictability and give him a trip to Seabrook on the Washington Coast
Seabrook is the Washington Coast’s only true resort town. Located on the bluffs above the Pacific Ocean, a short drive from Seattle and Portland, you’ll find everything the dad in your life needs for a weekend away.
From beer and bonfires to swimming, biking, kayaking and relaxing, Seabrook has it all.
Seabrook’s rentals have the sizes and styles for which you are looking, no matter if you want a quiet escape for just the two of you or a place for the entire extended family to have a getaway. Both cozy and spacious, these rental units are the perfect place for a night, a weekend or a week away from the busyness of the real world.
The homes, reminiscent of the traditional Cape Cod style of architecture, have a unique Pacific Northwest flare, many with wooden shingles as siding. Seabrook’s rentals are also full of amenities, with dozens offering fireplaces, hot tubs, dog-friendly confines and even ocean views. Some homes even have a fire pit right outside. With decks and yards, as well as a short walk to a swimming pool, the downtown core, and even the ocean, dads of any age will find solace and comfort here.
What makes a stay at a rental home at Seabrook so perfect is that you’ll have everything you need to have a great vacation. The rentals, while each unique, are furnished with incredible art work, comfortable furniture and great appliances to make you feel right at home.
A Day Out on the Town
Once you are at Seabrook, leave the car parked and take a stroll around this incredibly walkable town. Everything you need is found just outside your front door, helping to make your Seabrook vacation that much more relaxing. Without having to drive, you have access to Seabrook’s collection of top-rated merchants, from restaurants to small shops of every variety. With restaurants like Mill 109 Pub to grab a pint, Frontager's Pizza for a slice, Stowaway Wine Bar and Cheese Shop, Red Velvet Bakery and Koko’s to choose from, your taste buds will also be on vacation.
Seabrook has dozens of shops to explore. A few must stops are the dog gift shop The Salty Dog, home goods store Seaworthy, beach gear and toy store Seabrook Kids and Seabrook’s very own logo wear shop. If you are looking for something a bit more relaxing, ease your stress at Spa Elizabeth.
If your dad would rather spend time outside, Seabrook has numerous parks and trails to explore, as well as miles of sandy shore to wander from sunrise to sunset. The parks are perfect to spend some quality time with the loved ones in your life, basking in the salty air and the constant churning of the waves of the Pacific, just a few feet away.
Recreation at Seabrook
For those dad’s who enjoy being active, Seabrook has dozens of options for sports and outdoor recreation. Seabrook is one of the only destinations along the Washington and Oregon coast to have a heated indoor pool for guests, as well as having an outdoor basketball court, tennis courts, and a variety of lawn games in Crescent Park.
Seabrook is also a place to get out into the wild, thanks to the area’s incredible mountain bike trails, hiking paths, and beaches. Your hub for information, rental bikes and other outdoor equipment can be found at Buck's Bikes in Seabrook. At Buck’s, you can book a kayak tour to the Ghost Forest, or rent a bike, paddle board, surfboard, or skimboard for a day of exploration.
Basecamp to Adventure
If adventure into wilderness is what your dad enjoys, Seabrook is your ideal basecamp for adventure. After partaking in the amenities of town, a short drive to Highway 101 will grant you access to Olympic National Park and Forest. The western sections of Olympic are world-renowned for their beauty and ruggedness, highlight by the rainforest and coast.
A stay at Seabrook will have you close to some of the most wild nature in America. While there are no bad areas of Olympic, you can’t go wrong with a visit to the towering trees and moss of the Quinault Rainforest and the sea stacks of Kalaloch’s Ruby Beach. These two destinations are as iconic as they get, perfect for a new family picture, or a quiet stroll in nature. Pick up a guidebook by a local expert and find the best possible trails for your dad.
