Keep it casual with jeans and tennis shoes. No heels or dress shoes necessary unless you are going out for a nice dinner. With a lot to do you want to make sure you can partake in everything no matter what you are wearing. Layers are very important. With the ocean breeze, it can get chilly. During the day the sun will be plenty warm but sitting out on a patio relaxing after a long day of exploring you may want to bring a sweater. A must bring is a rain jacket. It does rain here quite a bit so it is important not to get caught in the rain without a cover. With that rain comes mud. When hiking the beautiful trails of Ocean Shores you might want to bring shoes you don’t care about getting dirty. When the warmer months stroll in a swimsuit is always good to have on hand. In Ocean Shores, there are a ton of water activities to experience so it is important to have clothes to cover up and take a break from the sun. You don’t want clothes that are going to restrict you from experiencing the wonders that is Ocean Shores.


Extra Gear

Umbrella is a nice thing to have during the rainy season. Not a necessity when you bring a raincoat but for shopping or nights out sometimes having that extra rain protection is nice. A beach bag with sunscreen, towel, and sunglasses for sunny days is a good extra packing tip. There is a ton of sightseeing from fishing, clamming, hiking trails, and whale watching, to name a few. A camera will capture those once in a lifetime memories for you to look at for years to come. No worries, if you forget something because Ocean Shores have plenty of stores to shop and get those last minute items.
