The best thing about Buoy is the view of the river, but they also make good beer and burgers. Part of the floor is glass bricks so you can see through to the pilings below. The kids love it!

Sightseeing

This is a great place for a picnic with a beautiful view of the lower Columbia River, or a day-hike up the hill for even better views. The history is also fascinating, with old bunkers to explore.

Oysterville is a picturesque village with historic homes near the tip of the Long Beach Peninsula. It used to be the county seat (until the records were stolen by the South Bend Raiders!). After enjoying the charming historic church and homes you can drive out to the port and get some nice views of Willapa Bay.
