Summer is often considered peak vacation season, but the weather cooling off doesn’t mean you pack the suitcases away for the year. Ocean Shores is an excellent destination for your vacation regardless of the season. There are several benefits of visiting Washington State and The Polynesian Resort in the fall.
1. Enjoy More Open Availability
Since many families and groups book their vacations during the summer months, rooms tend to book up quickly. This can cause you to miss out on desired dates or have fewer options when booking a room. By waiting just a month or two, you’ll be more likely to secure the standard room or condo-style unit at The Polynesian Resort that fits your group best. Staying at our Ocean Shores resort during the off-season can also possibly save you some money. Before reserving your stay, check out the specials page for current discount offers.
2. See Stunning Fall Foliage and Scenery
Washington nature is beautiful any time of year, but there’s something extra magical when autumn colors begin popping up. Fall foliage generally starts appearing around the end of September, with peak foliage being in mid-October. A great way to take in the fall colors is by lacing up your hiking boots and exploring area trails for a bit of leaf-peeping. Quinault National Park is a top spot for fall foliage if you are looking for a day trip. More local trails include Weatherwax Trail and Perkins Pond Nature Trail.
3. Explore Area Attractions and Activities with Less Crowds
As summer fades into the background, you won’t have to compete with crowds when visiting the sights around Ocean Shores. Hiking trails will become even more peaceful, and availability for rentals like mopeds will open up. Take your time at area attractions like Pacific Paradise Family Fun Center, Playtime Family Fun, or Shores Bowl.
Enjoy an Autumn Getaway in Ocean Shores
Even if you’ve visited Washington in the past, there’s nothing quite like seeing this state during the fall. By booking your stay at The Polynesian Resort, you’ll have the perfect home base for your vacation.
