- Take a stroll to village shops one block away, or take a marked trail to the beach, where you can dig for razor clams.
- Modern living: Each of the simple yet elegant guest rooms and suites features a microwave, fridge, and free WiFi.
- Work out in the onsite fitness center.
- Prep your catch for dinner at the onsite fish- and clam-cleaning station.
Westport, Washington: Quaint Coastal Town with Rugged Natural Beauty
In the coastal town of Westport, docks bustle with large fleets of commercial and chartered fishing vessels. Crowds often gather at the marina’s observation tower for bird’s-eye views of the boaters on Grays Harbor, Half Moon Bay, and North and South Bays. The marina district is also home to a number of small coffee shops and artisan boutiques.
You can spot wildlife here as well—cormorants and herons make their seasonal homes in the state wildlife preserves surrounding the town, and bald eagles are often seen gliding over the beach to the tune of patriotic rock music. Down the coast, surfers catch waves year round; to join them, you can rent gear from small shops nearby.
