We took a hike up the hill to see the emplacements at Fort Worden. I'm sure kids (especially boys) would love running up and down the steps and looking out at the sea. My husband did too and it was a nice walk with a good view. The surprise was a little zen garden with lovely poetry and well chosen concrete appointments. This one is hard to describe, but a lovely little place of peace, very artfully designed, a lovely extra to a nice walk.
Camping near the beach looked like fun. The lighthouse was closed. We skipped the museum, but for buffs, it looked like fun, and there are tours and special activities several times during the year. It's a little piece of history I knew nothing about.
