7 Things to Do in Ocean Shores

From aquatic adventures to things to do on dry land, there’s no shortage of activities to enjoy when vacationing in Ocean Shores. 

  1. If you’re staying at one of our rentals over the fall or winter, we highly encourage you to try digging for razor clams. There are several places to go digging, including parts of the shoreline of Mocrocks Beach and Copalis Beach.
  2. Try your hand surfing and see if you can catch a wave. Stop by North Coast Surf Shop for all your equipment needs or to sign up for a lesson.
  3. Explore the shoreline on a horseback riding excursion. Chenois Creek Horse Rentals offers rides on the beach starting at 10 a.m. until roughly 4:30 p.m.
  4. Enjoy some family-friendly competition. Spots like Pacific Paradise and Playtime Family Fun are home to several different things to do, like arcade games and more.
  5. Take a minute to learn about the state’s cultural and natural history at the Coastal Interpretive Center. This natural history museum features both indoor and outdoor exhibits.
  6. Spend a day on the beach flying kites. If you don’t have a kite of your own, stop by Ocean Shores Kites, and the staff can help you pick one out. 
  7. Disconnect for a little while and explore the Oyhut Wildlife Recreation Area. This is an excellent spot, steps from your rental,  to watch for wildlife like deer, birds of prey, the Western snowy plover, and more.
