Updates From The Coast
 
Pacific County Phase 3 - Responsible respectful guests welcome!
 
The health and safety of our residents, communities, 
and our visitors are still our highest priority.
 
Rest assured that people from all facets of our communities are tirelessly working together to make the needed adjustments and adaptations for a safe path forward. Everyone, even our valued guests, are going to have to do things a bit differently from here on. We hope we can count on your adaptive spirit, 
understanding and patience as we slowly reopen our doors.   


Status Reports & Details

Pacific County and the Long Beach Peninsula are currently in Phase 3 of Governor Inslee's "Safe Start Plan" - What's Open Each Phase.
 
Cranberry Harvest 
October's cranberry harvest has been a part of the culture of Washington's Long Beach Peninsula for over a century. This tart berry brings more excitement than you might expect as the bogs are flooded for harvest and roadside stalls begin to pop up. 

Fall harvest is well underway at Cranguyma Farms, with fresh cranberries available every weekend in October. Although the traditional Cranberry Harvest Festival is cancelled this year, during the weekend of October 10 - 11th, 2020, they will be hosting their first annual Harvest Fair from 10am - 4pm. 

It will be a small-scale, socially-distanced pop-up market with local handmade and handcrafted booths run by local vendors. All COVID restrictions will be followed, and masks are required.

If the weekend of October 10th doesn't line up with your schedule, the Cranberry Museum is open daily, except Thursdays. They sell fresh cranberries, and have self-guided bog tours for all to enjoy.


Food & Restaurants 
In the spirit of the season, Adrift Distillers created a limited-edition Winter Spiced Cranberry Liqueur. Both the Winter Spiced and their traditional Cranberry Liqueur are available in their tasting room to help you make a selection of which one puts you in the holiday spirit. Be sure to take a bottle home to add to cocktails (or holiday punch!).


Wild Mushroom Celebration
(through mid-November) 

The 20th annual Wild Mushroom Celebration coincides with the fall wild mushroom season in the Pacific Northwest - a region notable for the availability of some of the most prized and delectable fungi. Initiated by a small group in 2000, it has grown to attract those from near and far who savor wild mushrooms. For details, visit the Wild Mushroom Celebration website. 


Looking Ahead - Thanksgiving 
Things are different this year. Consider getting away from it all with a different type of Thanksgiving at the beach. 

Let our fabulous chefs and restaurants prepare an amazing ready-to-go feast for you and yours to enjoy in your getaway room, cabin, or vacation rental. Follow it up with a long walk on the "world's longest beach" with someone you love. 

Be sure to book your stay well in advance. Click here for restaurant options

Clam Digs 
To really reap the rewards of the Long Beach Peninsula fall bounty, you could time your visit with one of the upcoming Razor Clam Digs, and have the makings for an amazing meal. King-5 News is dubbing it 'distanced digging', and reporting a 'stupendous population' awaits visitors. We've created a helpful resource for planning.
