Things to do near your Olivia Beach vacation home rental
There's a delightful little park in the heart of Olivia Beach with an open grassy area, picnic tables, a play structure, and a firepit, great for a lazy afternoon lunch or some after-dinner s'mores. The community also has a heated, saltwater pool and exercise room for those who want to stay faithful to their exercise regimen.
When low-tide comes, take the boardwalk to the beach and explore tidepools for marine life, do some beachcombing, and look for glass floats made by local glass artisans and dropped by the Visitors Bureau throughout the year.
Check out the Nelscott strip and sample the food at delicious eateries and browse the shops for jewelry, gems and rocks, chocolates, herbs, and more. There's even a year-round Christmas shop if you're looking to plan ahead for the holidays.
Make your way to Devils Lake, only three miles away, and rent a boat or kayak to paddle around this beautiful, serene body of water.
