Long Beach Peninsula, Washington, USA

Find the best place to stay — Long Beach Peninsula

Beauty, beaches, and a bounty of recreational adventures

Jetting out from the southwestern tip of Washington State, the Long Beach Peninsula is bursting at the seams with natural beauty. Surrounded by 3 separate bodies of water, the region offers some of the Evergreen State's best beaches, including 28 miles of sandy, oceanfront loveliness. Explore the area like Lewis and Clark did hundreds of years ago and visit the numerous, lush state parks bustling with outdoor activities. The peninsula's cozy little villages also offer plenty of year-round fun for everyone bunking down in a Long Beach Peninsula vacation rental.

Beach blanket bingo: waterfront fun and more

Few things in life are certain but your Long Beach Peninsula vacation rental will put you near a host of outdoor adventures. Like your thrills on a grand scale? Try your hand at surfing or launch yourself off a towering zipline course. Get ready to prepare your own meal after you spend the day fishing, picking oysters, or digging for clams. Soak up fresh coastal air while you hike, bike, or play a game of beach volleyball. Laid-back beach activities include picnicking, horseback riding, building sandcastles and simply marveling at the view as the sun dips into the Pacific Ocean.

Let's go fly a kiteÉ and climb a lighthouse, too!

In search of even more natural wonders? Make your way to Cape Disappointment State Park, climb the steps of the North Head Lighthouse, and watch from above as massive waves crash into the rocky shores down below. History buffs can tour the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, which highlights the famed explorers and the region's rich maritime history. Quaint beach towns offer family-friendly fun for everyone, including go-kart tracks, miniature golf courses, and carnival rides. Embrace local living by touring a cranberry farm and experience kookier fare with a visit to the World Kite Museum and Hall of Fame.

Not too hot, not too cold, this spot is just right

No matter what time of year you book your Long Beach Peninsula vacation rental, you'll most likely enjoy some mild conditions. Winter is the coldest season but even then, daytime temps usually stay in the high 40s or low 50s. The mercury rises slightly in the spring and fall but don't expect highs to exceed the low 60s. The Pacific Northwest lives up to its rainy reputation almost year-round but the peninsula gets particularly drenched between November and March. Summers, on the other hand, are typically dry and mild with temps hovering in the high 60s.

Water, water, and (for good measure) more water!

Water stretches as far as the eye can see on a peninsula where the Pacific Ocean lies to the west, the Columbia River sits to the south, and Willapa Bay borders the east. In areas where the coast isn't dotted with dune-covered beaches and rocky outcrops, you'll find dense grasslands and sprawling marshes. The emerald-tinged tips of the peninsula include lush parks with old-growth forests and freshwater lakes. The region is also teeming with wildlife, including forests filled with elk and black bears, rivers swimming with salmon, and shorelines occupied by pelicans.
