Ocean Shores has been welcoming Pacific Northwest beachgoers since the 1960s, when celebrities including Pat Boone invested in a resort-style community – complete with golf and a network of canals. The town has had its share of struggles since its splashy start, but miles of beaches remain a big draw for strolling, kite flying and many annual events.
