Take the opportunity and do this drive to take in all this spectacular coastline has to offer with its different settings and backdrops. There are a number of places where you can stop and get out and explore and if the weather is right enjoy...More

Ok, I have been to a ton of National Parks. . But this one just felt like it was just a ton of driving to get from one "attraction" to the next. Hurricane Ridge was very pretty as there was snow on the peaks. We...More

Who would have thought that at the top of a mountain in a sulpher-laden hot-springs spa, there would be a decent restaurant? Well, there is. The food is not haute cuisine, but interesting: elk hamburgers, Mexican flautas, and crab Cobb salad. The creme brule is...More

Enjoy hiking and beach walks. Stop by the hot springs and relax. Make sure to drive up to hurricane ridge to see the wildlife. So much to see you can spend a week on this drive and not see it all.

Really a lovely way to spend a week. We enjoyed the drive along the coast despite heavy rain. We stayed at several places that were beautiful with moss covered trees. We saw 6 bald eagles during our stay around the peninsula.

This is a very unique forest ... It's a rain forest, but temperate. So the trees are actually much taller than in a tropical rain forest, everything is covered with moss. But it's also more walk able and airy. There is really nothing like it,...More

This is one of the most scenic drives in the US. However, you need to use something like Google maps or another route calculating device to give you an estimate of how long it will take to drive between different points. A great deal of...More
