Washington roads are so well maintained, but the speed limits are low and well patrolled. You will get a ticket if you aren't careful. So do yourself a favor and set the cruise control.

Anyone familiar with the congested 8-lane stretches of US 101 in California would not recognize this peaceful 2-lane blacktop.

Many people have written and said that they were disappointed with the drive. We were not. We only did from Ocean Shores to Port Angeles, but we loved every minute of it. Take your time and stop at beaches, trails etc. to experience it all.

I was so excited traveling this highway and it was so beautiful! I can just imagine how it looks during the winter.

This highway was the path to all kinds of visual treats in Olympic National Park. We drove on it several days in a row and highly recommend the areas of the park where it takes you!

We enjoyed driving this was from Aberdeen to Sequim, although it was windy and took a while. We stopped at many beaches along the way to get our and walk around and enjoy ourselves. We didn't have time to stop at Ruby Beach, but I do want to go back. We got some pics of it.

The drive along Highway 101 in the Olympic National Park takes you to the places you'll want to go and keeps you enthralled with every curve.

I gave this an average rather not because its ucly but more because we drove the Oregon part of Highway 101 before the Washington part. And having said that Oregon part is more diverge and rugged. More to my liking

This route is a stunning way to get around Olympic NP in Washington. Not only does it take you to Lake Quinault and the Hoh Rainforest, but on the way you go past some beautiful beaches on the coastline, including Ruby Beach and Beach 4. These stops are not to be missed!

We took 101 from Seattle to San Fran. The ocean views are spectacular with the rocks. I recommend driving this road. Put it on your bucket list.
