Wonderful family vacation and/or couples retreat. It's a combination of wilderness, easy day hikes, scenic vistas and water in its many forms!

My husband, 25 yr old daughter, and myself spent 4 days and 3 nights on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington in May 2015. My daughter moved to Seattle from Texas in 2014 and we are taking in various sites each time we visit from Texas. The Olympic Peninsula is a must-see area! On Friday May 8, 2015 we took our... More

When you get on the ferry in downtown Seattle, you leave a bustling, crowded city where life in the fast lane is everywhere except on the I-5..... When you reach the other side of the Sound, life slows down and becomes both rural and maritime. Driving across the northern rim of the Peninsula takes you between beautiful ocean and the... More

Go in the summer when it's sunny and the days are long. Stop off at Crescent Lake for a really tasty lunch.

The drive around the Olympic Peninsula Loop Drive is worth the time. Too many people think it will take too long. If you plan well, you can make the trip and see many sites while you are on the road. There are many places to stop and look at the Pacific Ocean and to walk on the beach. Pick a... More

This is a stunningly beautiful drive through a truly unique environment, a rain forest that is not in the tropics. Be careful and if it's cold be on the lookout for black ice. We hit a patch and ended up mere inches from going off a cliff backwards.

So much to see and do. Very different experiences from rainforest to beach to beautiful lakes. Worth taking 3 days to do this loop.

We drove the entire loop with some intermittent rain. Loved the waterfall. Enjoyed the short but steep walk to the large cedar tree you can stand in. Does have section of dirt road but worth the trip.
