It’s true. You can drive for miles on the beach in Washington, go from town to town to town, as far as the sand will let you.
There are rules however. This taken from the Long Beach Peninsula Visitor’s Bureau website:
“All drivers and vehicles must be licensed and insured just as on any other State Highway (Sorry, no ATVs). The speed limit is 25 mph, with extra caution to be taken for other vehicles, pedestrians, sunbathers, and beach debris. The beach is patrolled frequently and all laws are strictly enforced. Reckless or careless driving is not tolerated and can result in expensive tickets and even license suspension, so please, play it safe! Parking is allowed.” (emphasis mine)
So no donuts! This means you!
