Washington’s Coast contains a little of everything, white sand beaches, gorgeous sea stacks, temperate rain forest and mile after mile of trails. The small towns often get lost in all the nature, but communities like Seabrook and Westport are tossing a little Northwest ambiance into the breaking waves.
What Makes This Region Great?
Living on the Washington Coast is unlike any other coastal area in America, a truly wild environment where the nation’s best seafood is literally steps away, whether you go foraging for razor clams or settle into a bowl of seafood chowder in downtown Westport.
We all know them, the people for whom beaches are bliss. If you count yourself among this sand loving crowd you won’t have to look very far. There are stretches of shoreline from Grayland to Moclips.
Working in an active port town is pretty rare on the west coast. Living here adds a salty air to the daily routine, a dynamic environment teeming with character and characters.
Growth & Affordability
There isn’t that much rural living to be found in a region that is growing as fast as the Pacific Northwest. Yet plenty of towns from Raymond to Chehalis offer a lower key lifestyle with great outdoor recreation and real sense of place.
Whale and Pelagic Bird Watching
Westport offers the premier wildlife viewing in the state with truly epic discoveries such as albatross and migrating blue whales, among many species, a few miles off the coast.
Cohasett and Copalis Beaches are just two gems in a crown of amazing breaks for the surfing inclined.
Planned communities don’t often look like Seabrook, home to cottages, wide front porches, urban amenities and a bridge to an amazing beach.
Washington State Capitol
Home to Washington’s government offices, the state capitol was once not located in Olympia. Completed in 1928, the large domed building is the fifth tallest masonry dome in the world and the tallest in North America. It’s even withstood three major earthquakes.
You don’t have to be a “Twilight” fan to get the most out of a La Push visit, especially if you like casting off the nearby Umatilla Reef for all four salmon species and halibut!
Lake Quinault Lodge
Built in 1926 in the grand style of national park lodges, Lake Quinault Lodge provides a wilderness escape at the southern tip of Olympic National Park.
“Washington is incredibly diverse. The landscape is beautiful and the people are so welcoming. There are so many opportunities to grow and experience.”
