Workcation on the Long Beach Wa Coast

Plan Your Perfect Workcation or Flexcation on the Long Beach Washington Coast

Workcations and Flexcations' are all the rage, and it is not just during the Covid-19 era.  Working and schooling remotely will likely continue long after the pandemic. Businesses see tremendous cost savings and productivity gains in a remote workforce. Employees love the opportunity to work remotely to help them attain a healthier work-life balance and a healthy lifestyle.  Kids love getting out of the house, and let's face it, homeschooling is much more enjoyable at the beach, especially when there are so many great museums for kids to learn at the source, and there are so many fun things to do for kids to do after school.

 What is a Working Vacation?


‘Workcation’ means “someone travels to a fun location and completes specific work tasks to a goal before you leave .”Workcations or flexions can be a  source of productivity and creativity. Stepping away from your small home office into an environment where one always hears the ocean waves and the beach is just a few steps away can foster free thinking and increased productivity.


Take your laptop to the beach? Why not?

Teach children at the source


Let's face it. Kids are bored with learning from a screen. Why not take them to the lighthouses and show them where 2000 ships ran aground and 700 lives were lost? Visit the jetties that helped stop the loss of maritime vessels and explain what caused the accretion of miles and miles of new wetlands and dunes. Walk in Lewis and Clark's footsteps. Visit the interpretive center and other museums to learn about their journey, which ends near where you are standing. Or stop by the Middle Village Station Camp and learn about the 10,000 years before Lewis and Clark when the Chinook people thrived at the coast. Learning remotely can be so much fun and memorable!
