We took a diversion and went to the Hood Canal area and found it to be charming. The bridge itself is an engineering marvel.

Beautiful drive along the Hood Canal. Lots of fun places to stop including parks and shopping. There are many sights and even wildlife to see along the way. A great way to spend the day.

After completing a 2 month international tour, we were comparing our visits to the Hood Canal area, which is North America's longest fjord with other areas throughout the world. Our most recent Hood Canal stay was at The Historic Balch Retreat on Hood Canal, a historic waterfront home on the widest portion of the canal. With so many natural offerings... More

We rented a house called GiggleFish from VRB365. The house is right on Hood Canal with breathtaking views of the canal; eagles; heron; seals and so much more. The property is perfect with a main house and a cabin. We were a party of 6 and were comfortable using the house for a gather spot. The cabin is perfect for... More

Hood Canal is a beautiful natural setting. A true fjord, surrounded by the Olympic Mts within a couple of hours drive from Seattle. Even in the fall and winter the drama of the rain forest and snow capped mountains makes it worth the trip. Great places to stay and eat in the surrounding areas.

Unfortunately our view was usually blocked by trees and there were no viewpoints to pull out onto to enjoy the view, stretch our legs and take some photos. Very disappointing -... More

We enjoyed our time on Hood Canal. We did a lot of crabbing there for Dungeness crab. They were yummy! The weather can be rainier than the rest of the area. The water is warm in the late summer.

Wonderful drive on Hwy 101. Lots of winding up and down with lovely views. It is suggested to pull over for views as the road can be well traveled. Look out of people on bicycles. loging trucks and people just looking out on too the canal and not the road. Use some caution and pull over for faster cars. Great... More
