Westport, Washington is located on the opposite side of the entryway to Grays Harbor from Ocean Shores. Unlike the beach towns to the north, Westport has a distinctly different appearance and feel to it. This goes back to the community’s long ties to the ship building, fishing, and ocean transportation industries. Westport’s downtown and waterfront is the quickest place to see this unique look. The town still has the sandy beaches that people flock to the ocean for though on its southern side. This combination makes it a unique vacation destination and helps it to have a wider variety of things to offer you should you be lucky enough to go there.
