20 Things to do in Seaview

Jul 7, 2022 | Family Fun

Seaview offers a peaceful beach experience. Lined with historic Victorian and Craftsman homes as well as beach cabins, it’s a pleasant place to simply take a stroll. But there are other things to do in Seaview too!

With several gourmet restaurants, wellness offerings, and plenty of places to simply breathe, this little village may become your favorite beach escape.


1. Take a relaxing stroll along the Discovery Trail.

The portion of the Discovery Trail running through Seaview is a peaceful, sweet-smelling stretch of dunes and shore pines. View the map here for access points.


2. Eat at the award-winning Depot Restaurant.

Once a train station on the Clamshell Railroad, this historic building now houses the award-winning Depot Restaurant. You’ll be dreaming of their mouthwatering dishes long after you return home. Reservations are recommended.


3. Sit around a fire on the beach.

The simplicity of sitting fireside with family and friends while watching a sunset on the beach is hard to beat. Don’t forget to bring folding chairs and blankets!

Know before you go: read up on rules and beach safety. Check for burn bans here.


4. Lettuce eat! Stop by Molly’s Station.  

Stop by this local sandwich shop with indoor and outdoor dining, plus a full train layout!


5. Spot bald eagles.

Bald eagles are commonly spotted along the beach. We recommend bringing a camera and a pair of binoculars.

6. Enjoy homemade spaghetti and more at Galletti’s Spaghetti House!

Delicious pasta and Italian dishes made from scratch, made-to-order sauces, and daily specials make this a favorite spot for lunch and dinner!


7. Take a workshop at Sou’wester.

Learn a new art, strengthen your creative writing skills, learn about the natural world, and dance! These fun artist-led workshops happen year-round at Sou’wester.

Check their current workshop series here.


8. Enjoy a picnic on the beach.

Pack a lunch and take it easy! There are no picnic tables at the Seaview beach approach, so be sure to bring along a picnic blanket.


9. Visit in the spring for giant rhododendrons!

Plan a trip in April to see the giant rhododendrons in Seaview. Many of these historic rhodies grow as tall as the houses and come in all colors.


10. Enjoy some IPA at North Jetty Brewing

Not only does North Jetty offer an incredible selection of craft beer, they also offer a great space to relax and hang out. Choose from 18 taps, pick out a board game, grab a bowl of peanuts–you’ll feel right at home as soon as you walk through the doors.


11. Go beachcombing.

Beachcombing is a favorite pastime on the peninsula. The best time to go is after a big storm sweeps through, or join the Grass Roots Garbage Gang for one of the yearly community beach cleanups.


12. Comfort food awaits at 42nd St. Cafe & Bistro

The cozy 42nd Street Cafe & Bistro has an incredible menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They use many seasonal ingredients, locally sourced seafood, and real butter. Yum!

Browse a diverse selection of Washington-grown cannabis products at the Mr. Doobees. The friendly staff can help you find exactly what you’re looking for and get you up-to-date on state laws to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable experience.


14. Aesthetic awaits at the Shelburne Pub & Dining Room 

Even if you aren’t staying at the historic Shelburne Hotel, walk through the garden out front and step into the pub or dining room for a delicious meal next to gorgeous stained glass windows. The setting alone is worth the visit.


15. Catch a concert at Sou’wester

Enjoy live music in the beautiful, historic Sou’wester Lodge whether or not you’re staying there! Check their calendar to see who’s playing.


16. Dine in a historic railroad car at the Loose Kaboose
