Dear future Seabrook guest,
Summertime memories are happening right now in Seabrook! From the sunny days spent exploring the town and beach, to day trips and nearby experiences, a summer getaway to Washington’s Beach Town has us feeling like this is hands-down the best place to visit on the Washington coast.
This summer marks a historical year for us with new town amenities and shops opening, along with the return of new and annual events that families look forward to attending year after year. We’ve watched our town bustling with excitement each day as families, couples, friend groups, and solo travelers effortlessly create their dream getaway and we’re so excited to be a part of these moments.
Earlier this month, thousands of people came to town for the Fourth of July holiday weekend! We saw so many festive outfits, decorated homes for the Porch Illumination Celebration, parades, elaborate barbecues and cookouts, colorful cocktails at the restaurants, and s’mores roasting over fire pits as everyone came together to celebrate Independence Day. The sunset on the holiday itself was one of the most beautiful sunsets of the year, offering a mesmerizing backdrop for the fireworks displays happening all along the beach. We want to thank everyone who helped keep the beach pristine during the cleanup before and after the holiday – that togetherness is all part of what makes Seabrook the best Fourth of July vacation destination on the coast.
When it comes to Washington state events, heading here where it’s full of summer events and activities for the whole family to enjoy is a must. The excitement around everything from the sunset concerts to the town tours and Saturday Markets, to the grand opening of the outdoor pool, the Arcade, and Mr. Walrus, has made each day an adventure and there’s a lot more where that came from heading into the rest of summer with us.
Many guests have shared their enthusiasm about bringing fun and a love of learning together with our Experts-In-Residence program — so far we’ve seen improv, STEAM projects, native plants and yoga lessons! — that are all family-friendly and take place each Saturday through Wednesday all summer.
For more learning and fun, we’ve also welcomed several authors as part of the Beachside Author Series with more to come. Stop by and hear from authors firsthand and feel your love of reading or writing reignite in these casual gatherings. All of the author events are free for all to attend, come join us for readings, Q&As, book signings, workshops, and more through October for that cherry-on-top of an already perfect coastal getaway.
Along with the unbeatable shopping and dining experiences in town, we’ve seen the smiles from the outdoor enthusiasts in Seabrook, too. We’ve seen yogis heading to Kucera Park on Saturdays for a serene session of morning yoga, beachgoers playing-it-up with beach volleyball classes, kids trying skimboarding and surfing for the first time, mountain bikers hitting the trails to take in that spectacular oceanview on the Mike-O-Rama trail, new gnome homes being ‘built’ in the Gnome Trail village, and pickleballers packing the pickleball courts, to just name a few outdoor activity highlights!
We can’t forget how magical the evenings are during this time of year, too. The twinkling lights of the town make watching each sunset even more special as it turns into primetime stargazing. Families gather on wraparound decks to play games, go for sunset strolls on the beach with their dogs, or grab an evening bite or drink at the local restaurants making each wind down from a day full of fun, relaxing on true quality time with those you love most.
There’s still plenty of summer left to soak in on the Washington coast, we can’t wait to see you at the beach!
