In August will be spending 3 night with girlfriends. We don't get to see each other much and wanted a beach trip. I was hoping for Manzanita, but we were able to borrow a cabin for free from a friend, so price won out and now we're going to Ocean Shores, sigh. We went to Ocean Shores often when I was a kid and I have been several times as an adult because family friends live there. I've always thought of it as a dreary little place with not much to do. Besides the jetty and the interpretive center (just learned about it!), I am looking for recommendations to make the most of the trip. Where is the best place to take a long beach walk? Without cars? Any easy hikes nearby? Good daytrips-but not too much driving? Other ideas? Thanks!
