Go fly a kite … you can here, as this small coastal destination is noted for its expansive Pacific beach. Horseback riding is also welcomed, and you can also paddleboard on the adjacent canals. Traditional amusements are featured, along with biking, fishing, golf, water sports, bird watching, entertainment, galleries, shopping including antiquing and dining. Whew! Less than three hours from Seattle, this popular vacation spot is also known as a great weekend getaway. As its tourism site invites: "Music, art, parades, dancing, quilts, picnics, and festivals make the Coast an exciting place to be, any season of the year." And be sure to pose at Sharky's, said to be the most-photographed store in the area, since you walk through a giant shark jaw to enter the gift/souvenir shop.
