Storm Watching in these Fabulous Getaway Spots

A nice stormy day at the coast is a great thing. Unplug, grab a cup of something hot to drink, curl up with a cozy blanket by a fire, read a book, or get social with friends or family face-to-face. Ignore the t.v. and the phone and get out the games and just listen to the rain instead. All you need is a comfortable vacation rental with great views. We’ve found a few to tempt you for a lovely weekend getaway perhaps to someplace new along the beautiful Pacific Northwest coastline.
