Hey - if you are heading west you need to visit Makah Reservation and hike to Cape Flattery. The cliff views will take your breath away! Hikes includes walking on long boardwalks. Remember to stop at Makah Indian Museum on the way in to purchase a park pass. These fees are critical to help maintain these beautiful parks for us... More

Neah Bay is the end of the road in these parts. There is a grocery store, restaurant and museum featuring the artifacts from the Ozette Dig. You can get your $10 parking pass almost everywhere. It is all about the beach and fishing out here. Bring your raingear, the mist can roll in at any time.

Located in Neah Bayat at the north west corner of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington, the Makah Indian museum is superb! Hard to believe it is a private native American museum. About an hour and a half of somewhat boring drive from Port Angelsalong the northern coast is worth the trouble. There are several decent restaurants and one hutmaking and... More

The Makah Museum, featuring an in-depth examination of traditional culture is a must-see for those visiting the Olympic Peninsula. It offers a vivid picture of pre-settler life in this part of the world.

Stopped and got food a few times. People are friendly, wants to talk and the small harbor is nice to walk.

Liked everything. Incredible that you are actually looking at stuff that was used 400 to 500 years ago. Gentleman at the front counter has been there forever (20 years?) and courteous but a bit opinionated (aren't we all?). Well worth the drive.

We drove through this on our way to Cape Flattery. The entire area is a nice drive, leading up to this the road was windy and by water and scenic drive.

.5 mile hike to the most northwesterly point of the United States of America. .5 mile hike return. Take your time and water. Good trail laid out.

I was shocked to see reviews of unfriendly locals. We encountered only very friendly people! The area is beautiful. Cape Flattery and the Makah Museum are must sees. It is a poverty stricken area, but you can see the people care about their culture and are trying to improve their lives.

We had expected to find a beautiful, family-friendly coastal town with beautiful nature and friendly people, but we were very disappointed. First, on the way there, every local car tailgates you even if you are going over speed limit, and expects you to pull over (that is not always possible). One car tailgated me for almost two miles, honking the... More
