Ocean Shores

Ocean Shores is a city in the Olympic Peninsula region of Washington. It is located between Grays Harbor and the natural beauty of the Pacific Ocean. It is also near the wild wetlands of the Olympic Peninsula. The ocean shores are spectacular with a first-class resorts that offer the finest family vacation lodging anywhere on the Washington coast. The pacific coastline is made up of secluded beaches and ancient rainforests.

The weather in Ocean Shores is affected by the cold Pacific Ocean. Although it may be the middle of July and cloudless in the rest of the state, within 10 miles of the ocean, fog, wind, and mist will loom. With this in mind, don't come expecting to "catch some rays".

The Quinault Indian Nation is comprised of over 1,300 members of the Quinault, Queets, Hoh, Quilieute, Chehalis, Cowlitz, and Chinook tribes. The 208,150 acre Reservation is pure in its wild coastline, unspoiled lakes, raging rivers, and pristine wilderness--also home to one of the largest conifer producing forest in America.

On a trivial note, crooner musician Pat Boone was an early investor when the town development began in 1967.

If your stay in Ocean Shores includes a Sunday, you shouldn't miss the incredible Sunday Morning Brunch at Quinault Resort Casino. Made to order omelets, waffles, carved ham and roast, lg peel and eat shrimp. I would compare this brunch to others I have had at Saltys in Seattle, Sheraton in S.F., and Wild Flower in Whistler BC.
