Long Beach, Washington has the World’s Longest Beach and a host of exciting group tour itineraries.
On the coast of Washington State is the small town of Long Beach with big experiences for groups! Ragan Myers, Tourism and Events Coordinator for Long Beach Package Travel said “In addition to 28 miles of gorgeous shoreline, 10 museums, and award-winning dining, we offer nearly 20 thoughtfully crafted itineraries. And we include concierge style assistance for groups that overnight in Long Beach.” Myers helps tour operators find group rates for lodging, dining, and customizes itineraries. She even helps plan a Mayor’s Red-Carpet Welcome. When a tour bus arrives, she rolls out a 6-foot red carpet before visitors disembarking the bus are greeted by the mayor or other community representatives. “Guests have giggled as they step off the bus, saying they feel like royalty. In a way, they are,” said Myers. “Each group of visitors is important to our community.”
Museum Tours – Rolling Old School
There are ten museums in the Long Beach area, each offering unique tours. At the Northwest Carriage Museum groups can get up close to 25 restored horse-drawn vehicles including a carriage used in the famous movie “Gone with the Wind”! Be sure to get your camera out for a photo as you try on a bonnet, buckskin vest, or climb into a Democrat wagon to have a ‘pioneer moment’. For more museum options visit longbeachpackagetravel.com.
Agricultural and Culinary Tours
Tour ranches, creameries, cranberry bogs and oyster farms. One of the newer tours available is at the Skamokawa Farmstead Creamery. The creamery tour includes opportunities to meet and play with baby goats, explore the milking parlor, watch the artisan cheesemaking process, tastings and time to shop. Groups will love the fresh flavors of locally sourced cranberry goat cheese and their famous Apple Bourbon Cajeta. The creamery is one of four culinary tours to experience.
Visit the Cranberry Museum and bogs that tell the story of the mighty cranberry. This berry has been around for centuries, as the Native Americans would use them to flavor their dried Salmon for their winter’s meal. Groups can enjoy walking tours, and delicious cranberry treats like ice cream, teas and so much more. The gift shop is a celebration of this sweet tart mighty berry.
