Visiting the LBP? Stop by the Visitors Bureau & say hello

Sep 13, 2016 | Archive

Stop in, say hello. Maybe stay awhile.

The Long Beach Peninsula Visitors Bureau is more than a destination marketing organization. It’s an information center, a community hub and a rest stop; a dog-friendly biscuit bar, PokeStop, geocache location and Wi-Fi hotspot. It’s a place where travelers and locals alike not only visit, but linger.

Find it free

Find free local and state maps, a free cup of coffee, free expert visitor information, free trash bags, free Wi-Fi. Notice a trend? In a world where just about everything carries a price tag, you’ll almost certainly leave the Visitors Bureau with not only a bag of goodies, but a fully intact wallet. And we have clean restrooms.

And what does carry a cost is worth every penny. Score local postcards for 30 cents apiece or four for a buck (and we’ll put the stamp on it for free!), purchase artistic prints of area locales like Cape Disappointment and Dismal Nitch or area birding guides.

Call it concierge – we’ll help you find what you need and point you in the right direction! So, pay us a visit. You’ll be glad you did.

Year-round fun

While you’re here, grab a Beach Visitors Guide or annual Events Calendar. Fall and winter are fantastic times to visit Washington’s southwest corner, where autumn is punctuated by culinary and cultural events and concerts. Coastal Christmas fun like Holidays at the Beach kicks off in late November and continues into December with the Crab Pot Christmas TreeSaturday Christmas Market and Water Music Festival Christmas Concert.

Then there’s the storm watching. Avid storm-watchers and photographers flock to Waikiki Beach in Cape Disappointment State Park, where churning waves explode like aquatic avalanches under the eye on Cape Disappointment Lighthouse.

Fall and winter also mark cranberry and crab seasons on the coast. And be sure to keep your fingers crossed for razor clams; state officials anticipate a near-banner razor clam season on the Long Beach Peninsula that could kick off in October. The Visitors Bureau offers loaner clam guns – also free! – as well as clam digging info and instructions.

Hey, there’s another reason to stop in and say hello! See you soon.
