Winter Activities at the Coast

Winter at the Washington Coast is a magical time of year. Less people walking along the beach, more seashells to be discovered and tons of cozy comforts to be enjoyed and appreciated in the winter! Below are a few of the many things to do around Ocean Shores during the winter.

GO CLAMMING

Clamming is a popular activity around here in the winter. You'll see families, groups of friends, and visitors to the region out digging for tasty clams. Why? Because it’s fun, and it’s easy!

seashells

SEARCH FOR SEASHELLS

Winter is the best time to go searching for treasures on the beach. Why? The heavier waves the coast gets this time of year stirs up the surf and drops a ton of unique shells on the sands.

EAT CLAM CHOWDER

There are few things that are better than a bowl of chowder on a winter day at the Washington Coast. We recommend trying Bennett's Fish Shack, located right here in Ocean Shores!
