The Seaside Loop

The Puget Sound, known as the Salish Sea to indigenous peoples of the region, is a place where islands float in mirrored water. 

With over 80 miles of shoreline, this inland sea invites recreation, relaxation, and reflection.

Land of Loops Pt 1: The Seaside Loop

Soak in the salty sea air while you kayak to a tiny sandy island. Explore rocky beaches, tuck into a cozy coffee shop, or catch your own Dungeness Crab. Wander bustling harbor towns where you can try your hand at glassblowing or enjoy the craft beers! Visit the Hibulb Cultural Center and learn about the history of the first people to care for this land. Everything in the Coastal Communities is inspired and informed by the Salish Sea—the atmospheric visual art, the fresh-from-the-boat salmon dinners, and the sweeping views of the Olympic Mountains.
