It’s About Time for a Real Holiday

Oct 30, 2017 | Winter

What if the holiday season meant an actual holiday? No stress, no cleaning, no traffic, no lines, or white elephants. What if you could escape all those parties, potlucks, and obligations? Forget about filling up your calendar. Forget about last minute stocking stuffers for your coworkers. Instead, come to the beach.

With 28 miles of beach and no crowds, you’ll find peace on earth and comfort and joy on the Long Beach Peninsula this holiday season. Whether you want a cozy room in a Bed and Breakfast or a more private experience in a Vacation Rental, we have you covered.

That’s not to say you should leave the family behind. This is the perfect place to bring your loved ones for Christmas. Spend more time creating cherished memories and traditions together than ever before. Free from the distraction of preparing for a holiday gathering, you’ll have time to make hot chocolate and play a game in front of the fire.

If you’re feeling more adventurous, take the family for a stroll along the beach, discover giant evergreens, or check out the lighthouses at Cape Disappointment State Park. Without the crowds, our natural landscape is a little more magical and personal.

A Long Beach Peninsula Christmas doesn’t come without quirky holiday charm. The downtown strip in Long Beach is lit up and decorated top to bottom, so you won’t miss out on Christmas lights. Take unique holiday photos in front of our Crab Pot Christmas Tree at the Port of Ilwaco or in front of the decorated giant frying pan and razor clam sculpture in downtown Long Beach. Your photo album will be full of bright, colorful holiday scenes. Bring your Santa hats and mistletoe for an added touch.

Simplify the season this year and join us for a quieter Christmas on the Peninsula.
