This unique region is the gateway to Olympic National Park, a land of dramatic coastlines with booming surf, wave manicured beaches, breathtaking mountain peaks, and sweeping vistas in every direction. From the rugged Pacific coast, to the Hoh Rain Forest, to the sunny “rain shadow” of the Sequim/Port Angeles area, the Olympic Peninsula offers travelers unique experiences filled with warm hospitality, culinary delights, exciting activities, outdoor adventures, stunning sights and so much more.
