Which coast is this again?


My dad, Richard Briggs, grew up on the east coast.  Living in New York City, he took most of his beach vacations in Massachusetts.  Sadly, we didn’t get to take an East Coast beach vacation together before he suddenly passed away in 2001.  It would have been a hoot I am sure.

Every time I visit Seabrook on the Washington Coast, I think of my dad because Seabrook is a place that evokes in me thoughts of what I imagine beach communities on the East Coast look like.  Lots of tidy and cute beach houses.

Parks with fire pits and bocce ball courts.  A community swimming pool that has the good sense to be indoors so it can be used all year-long.

A very cute dinner serving up amazingly yummy food.

After the first day of our first visit to Seabrook about six years ago, I was sold.  We have returned to Seabrook for several vacations.

We most recently visited this last summer, and I came away with another reason to love Seabrook.  Seabrook seems to use a lot of products made by members of our extended American family.  Seabrook’s cleaning crews are all equipped with Libman’s cheery green and white brooms and mops.

Most of the appliances in the homes we have stayed in at Seabrook are American made as is lots of the furniture.  We did a lot of reading on the porch of our Seabrook house this past summer and we were lucky to be sitting on great deck furniture made by Kingsley Bate.  Pretty stylish don’t you think?

So if you are looking for a great beach vacation, look no farther than Seabrook.  Come in the summer for our amazing summers.  Or come in the winter for blustery beach walks as you watch the storms come pounding in off the Pacific.  In any season, you and your family will have a great vacation.  And given Seabrook’s commitment to products made by members of our extended American family, those relatives will be happy as well that you came for a visit.
