13 Best Things to Do in Saltburn-by-the-Sea

I’ve been wanting to visit the good ol’ (rainy) PNW for freaking ever. I love green things and I think I have the opposite of the typical SAD (seasonal affectiveness disorder) in the sense that I feel sad if there isn’t enough rainy/cloudy days during the fall and winter.
