When we say "beach vacation," what comes to mind? Southern California? Long Beach, perhaps? Us too, only we're partial to Washington's Long Beach—named one of America's Favorite Beach Towns in 2009 by Forbes Traveler.

Buck the tide of bleached blondes and palm trees with this week's sandy Escape to the trendy Adrift Hotel, about two hours north of Portland on Washington's scenic southern coast—the anti SoCal if ever there were one.

Embark on a two-night stay for two, Sundays through Thursdays ($109) or any stay inclusive of a Friday or Saturday ($154), in a Basic Queen Room. For an additional fee, upgrade your room upon booking.

You'll also get a four-pack of Fort George Beer (a craft brewer based in Astoria), an assorted box of locally made Roll Chocolates (a boutique two-woman operation based in Portland), a handmade wood-fired pizza from the on-site Scapece Restaurant & Aperitivo Bar (opening April 12), and a daily delivery of organic picnic breakfast.

With a focus on sustainability, this pet-friendly hotel just 500 feet from the water features reclaimed décor and a minimalist esthetic. Rooms are appointed with a queen-size bed, private bath, and flat-screen TV—most also offer ocean views.

Start the day with your included breakfast basket—filled with homemade scones, fresh fruit, and other goodies—then saddle up on complimentary rental bikes for a cruise along the Discovery Trail. This eight-mile ride offers not only ocean views from atop sand dunes, but also a chance to learn about Lewis and Clark's "Corps of Discovery Expedition" via art installations and educational placards.

And it wouldn't be a beach vacation without surfers—Long Beach's brand, however, is a tight-knit crew of intrepid cold-water riders, clad in wet suits instead of board shorts. You also won't get the crowds of SoCal. No, in this town of just under 1,500 residents, you can expect your own patch of sand on a beach that's mere steps from your room, plus a laid-back vibe only the Pacific Northwest can deliver. Welcome to SoWa.

  • "Adrift is a funky, hip property with amenities worthy of a high-end property...We ran into a[n] owner in the elevator and were welcomed like old friends...All around, the perfect beach destination."
