The weather is starting to change once again. Fall is almost at an end here in Ocean Shores, and that means the town is preparing for the upcoming winter season. Lights will be shining bright for the holidays and fires will be roaring to keep you warm. Head over to The Grey Gull for a winter getaway and experience what our ocean shore resort has to offer!

The next few months will be packed with winter activities, from celebrating the shops in town to getting outside and exploring the new world covered in snow. Take a day trip to Olympic National Park and experience the beautiful snow-capped peaks and trails perfect for cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. Hurricane Ridge is the focal point in winter, with opportunities for downhill skiing, snowboarding, and tubing. Make sure you check the weather conditions because it can change quickly and what seems like a sunny day can end with heavy winds and blizzard conditions.

If the weather gets too cold or harsh, spend some time indoors. Go bowling, wander through a glassblowing studio, or go souvenir shopping. On November 24th through the 26th, celebrate the small businesses in our area. Winter Fanta-Sea offers over 70 arts and crafts booths featuring unique handmade items just in time for the holidays! Shop for gifts, enjoy local food, and bring the kids, and let Santa listen to your Christmas wishes. This is a fun event to enjoy with the whole family or to stop by and do a little shopping for yourself.
