Take that much-needed break during a getaway to the coast this winter! There are so many ways to reconnect when you step away from the hectic daily routines and into the calm, easy-living that happens the moment you step foot in Seabrook. Try these top five ways we love to see people connect, explore, and make memories in Washington’s Beach Town, where you’ll never be bored!
1. Exploring The Coast
No trip to the coast is complete without walking on the wide-open beach and feeling the sand beneath your feet (or rain boots). No matter the time of year, the breathtaking Pacific Ocean views and miles of shoreline are there for locals and visitors to explore every day.
Seabrook is also the perfect launching point to take a scenic drive along the coast and stop by beautiful beaches like Ruby Beach! Ruby Beach is one of Washington’s most iconic beaches with its sea stacks, tidepools, river rocks, and driftwood, only a 1.5-hour drive from Seabrook.
Tips For A Couple’s Getaway: As we’re in the midst of the month of love, kick up the romance with a casual stroll or bike ride on the beach and plan a picnic by a cozy beach bonfire!
2. Curated Shopping Experiences
Unwinding as a group, couple, or individual comes naturally in Seabrook where you can shift into “beach time” mode and savor each carefree moment. Seabrook’s growing Town Center is the best place to shop on the Washington coast if you’re looking for an inviting, relaxing retail experience.
For a sit-down experience, plan an outing to Lorraine’s Candle Studio where you can create custom candles together to take home. Head across the street to Joie Des Livres: The Joy of Books bookstore and pick one of several cozy spots to read together. For wine enthusiasts, enjoy an ocean view from The Stowaway Wine Bar where you can taste wine at your leisure and pick up your favorites to enjoy.
Take your time and browse through shops like Magnolias Clothing Boutique or Red Cedar Surf Co. for on-trend wardrobe selections, from boots to sweaters to hats! Your takeaways will have you smiling each time you wear them as you recall your coastal getaway.
Tips For A Couple’s Getaway: Make your shopping experience a romantic one with your partner by picking out a new game or puzzle to do together, picking out new home decor, or self care items for a pampering night in.
3. Endless Outdoor Adventuring
Take in the splendor of the coastal Pacific Northwest with outdoor winter activities that you and your crew will love doing together. Nature is interwoven throughout Seabrook so you’re never more than steps away from submerging yourself in the natural beauty of the coast! It’s easy to spend days doing invigorating outdoor activities, from mountain biking to beachcombing.
For those seeking more strenuous outdoor activities, try winter surfing, paddleboarding, mountain biking or hiking in Seabrook’s backyard. You can also try out fishing through Seabrook Hospitality’s Concierge Services who can help you book a local fishing guide.
If you have leisurely outdoor fun in mind, try anything from beachcombing, sandcastle building, kite flying, or storm watching to refresh and reset. In town, take a stroll through all of the Seabrook parks, play outdoor games like pickleball or basketball, and build a gnome home on the Gnome Trail. To unwind, take the forest bathing approach to hitting the trails and take a journey through relaxing mindfulness on the trail network.
Tips For A Couple’s Getaway: Bond with your partner on a quiet bike cruise down the shoreline together, stop by The Dugout by the indoor pool and ask the pool attendant for assistance checking out all kinds of outdoor games you can play together.
4. Fresh And Flavorful Eats
Seabrook’s restaurants offer everything from cozy and casual to upscale, laid-back, and romantic atmospheres, all offering delicious eats in the growing dining scene.
For breakfast on the weekends, stop by Koko’s Restaurant and Tequila Bar for a wide selection of brunch favorites like a savory breakfast burrito or Mexican pancakes or head over to Rising Tide for classic breakfast items like chicken fried steak or eggs benedict.
Lunch and dinner won’t disappoint with everything from Frontager’s Pizza Co.’s pizza and salads, to Koko’s and Blue Juice & Salad Bar’s fresh menu items, to seafood at Rising Tide and small bites at The Stowaway Wine Bar or fixings for a homemade meal with items from the Fresh Foods popup on Front Street.
