Welcome to TA.

Tell us more about you, the type of trip/travel you are planning, time of year, etc. Beach? Seattle? While we are surrounded by both fresh and saltwater, I am not sure Seattle is what most people think of when planning a "beach" vacation.

What kind of beach? When is the trip? If you like consistently warm, sunny beaches, then "no". Also, Seattle has some beaches, but the city is not situated on the open ocean. See Google Maps.

Seattle is not a good beach vacation.

for 'beach' you may wish to explore the Oregon Coast. Lots of scenic areas. Our oceans are not swimming type waters as too cold but lots of walking, and shell collecting. A different 'beach' experience per chance.

As others noted, the ocean here in the Pacific Northwest is a tad chilly for swimming -- nothing at all like Hawaii or southern California. Our Oregon beaches are great for walking and in some places, kite-flying. In Washington, your best bet would be the Long Beach Peninsula. The town of Long Beach has a nice boardwalk about a mile long on the beach. It has lots of restaurants and cafes, actitivities for kids and a couple of big kite festivals every year that draw "kite pros" from all over the world.
