Perhaps the most dramatic beach in Washington State.
Shi Shi Beach is located west of Neah Bay. Shi Shi (pronounced shy-shy) was named "best nature beach" by the Travel Channel. It's a day trip you'll remember. Shi Shi is an unspoiled beach and is reached by driving 66 miles from Port Angeles, through ClallamBay-Sekiu and on through Neah Bay, then followed by a 3.3-mile hike. The trip is well worth the time and one can enjoy the scenic beauty of Hwy 112.

Hurricane Ridge, 17 miles south of Port Angeles, in Olympic National Park, will make you feel like you're on top of the world. And, in fact, you are! Hurricane Ridge is reached by taking Hwy 101 into Port Angeles. Look for the Olympic National Park Visitor Center and Hurricane Ridge signs. Turn south on Race Street, and taking a slight right curve on the Hurricane Ridge Parkway. From there you will see signs leading to the Park Entrance.

A delightful way to explore the Olympic Peninsula, the Waterfall Trail offers year-round adventure and dramatic beauty. From the cliffs of Cape Flattery, to the glacial fjord of the Hood Canal to the Enchanted Valley of the Quinault Rainforest, waterfalls of all sizes and shapes abound! Some are easy walks on fores trails, others reached via paved, wheel-chair accessible paths, still more are in the backcountry of Olympic National Park. Two falls can only be reached by boat.

The Geoduck Tavern in Brinnon was voted one of the BEST BARS IN AMERICA by Esquire Magazine! They call it "a rustic paradise" and we definitely agree!
They love the Geoduck's own full-pound "Burger Dip" sandwich, and the great view from the back deck overlooking the Dosewallips River estuary where it meets the Hood Canal.
Put the Geoduck on your travel list, and see what author Chuck Thompson at Esquire Magazine is raving about!

One of the nation's newest National Scenic Byways, it follows the shoreline of a glacial fjord that connects Puget Sound to the Pacific Ocean, separating the Olympic Peninsula from Vancouver Island, British Columbia. This dramatic stretch of coastline with rugged cliffs and forests, reaches farther into the cold waters of the North Pacific than any other mainland point in the lower 48 states. Eagles, otters and gray whales are common sights, depending on the time of year.

Among the only protected temperate rain forests in the Northern Hemisphere, the Hoh Rain Forest is a not-to-be-missed attraction on the West Side of the Olympic Peninsula. Moisture-laden air from the Pacific brings an average of 140 inches of annual rainfall to the Hoh Valley,(record of 190 inches) in addition to condensed mist that contributes another 30 inches. Nineteen miles inland from Hwy 101 you’ll find the Hoh Rain Forest Visitor Center.

The Quilcene/Brinnon area holds an abundance of magnificant scenery just waiting for that special photograph. From magnificant mountain views at the top of one of our nearby mountain peaks, to the brilliance of the sunlite water of Hood Canal, to the soft light of forest trails winding along river banks or through wildflower meadows, this area is a photographer's dream.
