Pacific Beach State Park is a great spot to visit for the whole family, having designated areas for picnics, volleyball, tennis, playgrounds, and many more activities. There's additionally an awesome view of the beach from the park -- the white sand beach and diverse nature have resulted in the beach being called one of the most beautiful in Washington state.

Museum of the North Beach is a great spot to learn more about the marine life of the area, with plenty of interesting exhibitions for children and adults. There are lots of playgrounds and kid-friendly restaurants in the Pacific Beach area but if you're not traveling with children, visit the signature bars of the area and soak up the laid-back vibes with a cocktail in-hand.

Heading into downtown, only a few block away from the State Park, enjoy delicious desserts, drinks and great food. After a long day of exploring, make your way to one of the spas and indulge in a soothing facial or massage.
