Holiday Events During Christmas Getaways in Washington State
The Great Tree Lighting
If your Christmas getaways tend to be at the beginning of the holiday season, make sure you check out the Great Tree Lighting in Seabrook. This annual event takes place right after Thanksgiving and is fun for the whole family. Sing Christmas carols and sip hot chocolate as we kick off the Christmas craze and watch as the tree illuminates the town.
Breakfast with Santa
Take the kids to Breakfast with Santa at Mill 109 (now permanently closed)! Here, your children can lobby for presents and munch on pancakes in one sitting. They can even write him a letter (so he doesn’t forget) and participate in arts and crafts activities.
Razor Clam Digging
Razor Clam digging might not be your typical Christmas celebration, but Seabrook locals love to share this time on the beach with friends and family. Grab your rain boots, pick up a license at Pacific Beach’s You and I store, and get digging tools from Buck’s Bikes before heading down to the beach. Make sure to bring a lantern and arrive one to two hours before low tide for prime clam digging!
Winter on the Olympic Peninsula
Hurricane Ridge is the best place for winter activities and mountain views. Over 5,000 feet above sea level, this mountaintop viewpoint looks the part of a winter wonderland with its snow-covered trees, white powder slopes, and the best views in Olympic National Park. There are plenty of opportunities to hike, snowshoe, and snowboard as well as cross-country and downhill ski, depending on conditions.
Tip: Make sure you visit the Hurricane Ridge in Winter website for details on storms, hazards, and road closures.
Stroll along the coast at low tide or watch a sensational winter storm crash against the rocky cliffs of the Pacific Coast. Put on cozy clothes, grab a picnic lunch and a tide table, and head out to explore some of the most unique beaches and coastline in the country.
