The Open Studio Tours are among the best ways to see the peninsula's beauty and discover our creative members' many talents. Art studios are open up and down the Peninsula through Ilwaco, Long Beach, Willapa Bay, Ocean Park, and Surfside. The art you find as your journey will differ from the villages you travel through. The Old Train Depot in downtown Long Beach may also showcase a few artists throughout the year. Several new artist studios are ready to show off their latest pieces. It's interesting to see where the artists create their art and have the chance to talk to them about their work. Most locations will be serving refreshments. 

 

The PAA Studio art tour is a family-friendly outing and the perfect way to do exceptional shopping.
