Spring Break is Better at the Beach

Beach 2.8.16

Springtime weather on the Long Beach Peninsula.

Here’s a scenario: The kiddos are home from school, the days are getting warmer, and the frozen dinner drill is growing old.

In need of a break? Yeah, we thought so. Thankfully, the Long Beach Peninsula has just what you need! The good news is that spring break is right around the corner; the better news is that this holiday isn’t just for the students!

Make a Break for the Beach

A sensational spring break is taking shape on Washington’s Long Beach Peninsula: Razor clam season is in full swing, spring weather has made an early appearance and daylight is lingering a little longer each day!

So, what are you waiting for? Life is more relaxing at the beach! And once you get here, we’ve got plenty for you to do – think of your spring vacation like this: All of the action with none of the crowds!

razor clams

Razor clam harvests have been exceptional ahead of the Razor Clam Festival April 9-10.

As we mentioned last week, we’re just a little more than a month away from the Razor Clam Festival on April 9-10. Haven’t attended a Razor Clam Festival, you say? Well, now’s the time! Clam-digging lessons, clam chowder taste-off, clam fritter cook-off, live music and a beer garden – this event has it all!

With all that said, here’s another scenario: The kiddos are playing in the sand as an orange sun sinks into the Pacific Ocean, fresh razor clams are on the evening menu and a soothing ocean breeze tickles your skin. Is this the kind of break you need? Yeah, we thought so.

Thankfully, spring is right around the corner.
