From Hood Canal to the Pacific Coast, from the tallest summit in the Olympics to the rainforest valleys, Washington’s Olympic Peninsula is full of adventure. Olympic National Park, the Olympic National Forest and numerous state parks offer plenty of options for enjoying the outdoors.
You can choose from an easy day hike to a longer backpacking trek, from taking a scenic drive to exploring the coastal tidepools. The peninsula’s three largest cities—Port Townsend, Sequim and Port Angeles—are steeped in history and full of attractions that make them worth a stop.
Along the way, the Olympic Culinary Loop tempts with cideries, creameries, farm stores, and eateries dishing up foods fresh from the fields and the sea. Fill your picnic basket, or stock up to enjoy your culinary discoveries at home.
If you’re coming to the Olympic Peninsula for longer than a day, there are plenty of places to hang your hat, from classic national park inns to boutique resorts and hotels to charming bed and breakfasts.
Here, you can find all of the information you need to plan your Olympic Peninsula getaway.
