I go to the Long Beach penninsula a lot even though it's a shorter trip to go to Ocean shores from where I live to see the ocean, I just prefer Long Beach. You can take a nice easy walk to Northead Lighthouse (Even wheelchair accessable) and get a view to die for. You can also walk the boardwalk in downtown Long Beach or get your feet sandy by walking the beach. Bike riding is great and even riding the back roads is beautiful with all the old refurbished beach houses. Grab a picnic at the Cottage Bakery or have the scrumptious salmon fish and chips at the Lighthouse Restaurant (With a great view!). This town and it's neighboring towns are chocked full of B & B's and nice little motels that are the perfect and inexpensive get away in the off season. Summer brings so much entertainment that you need more than a weekend to check it out. If you're a bird watcher, go to Leadbetter point to watch the migration of thousands of birds, or just on the beach. 4th of July is crazy fun. I love camping out at Cape Disappointment where I can be steps away from the beach.
The Kite Festival is a must. Because of the boardwalk, it's accessable for everyone to enjoy too. You can go down onto the beach and there are several people there who will get you set up with a kite of your own too. Everyone can participate. The competitions are amazing to watch. Nighttime entertainment on the approach keeps the party going too.
The Long Beach Peninsula has something for everyone! Rain or shine. Whether you are going solo for some personal time, or you need a romantic weekend, or the whole family for fun, it's all there. I keep going back and always will. It's my home away from home.
*There is a small fee for Cape Disappointment and the Northead Lighthouse. One permit works for both. $5-$10 for daily, $30 for the year. Discover Pass.

We had an awesome time, as usual, frolicking on the beach with our dogs. It was fun to watch people out there flying their kites in formation. We also got to drive on the beach once and we didn't even get stuck in the sand this time! Even though the weather wasn't the greatest, we still had a wonderful time at the beach and can't wait to get back there again soon! I always love walking on the great paved Discovery Trail, too.

Beach combing, Razor Clamming and Geo-Caching all wrapped up into one great visit. They even have a couple Kite Festivals throughout the year. A huge boardwalk extends for miles and miles with benches, and historical information boards. Take a walk, ride your bike, bring a picnic. We love visiting Long Beach. Great restaurants, shops and galleries.

Just a nice little beach town with some interesting activities and a nice quiet beach. People are allowed to drive on the beaches here in Washington, so bring your 4WD! Lots of kite stores, tourist shops, eateries, go karts, pony rides, trails for hiking along the beach too.
