“If you're thirsty and you're in the mood for pub grub, this is the best place to go on the Olympic Peninsula. The food is excellent and they have several rotating taps offering craft beers, ales, and hard ciders from all around the Pacific Northwest. They are open late, but expect a wait. The wait is worth it.”

Tourist Information Center
“I grew up on the Olympic Peninsula and have traveled a fair amount around the world yet this rainforest holds a special place in my memories. It is profound in its majestic rainforest experience. This is a healthy drive from Seattle and you may want to plan an overnight or if camping is an option and is available. I can recommend amazing day hikes, meanderings or epic adventures.”
