Olympic National Park

In Olympic National Park, ancient rainforests and ocean tidal pools at lower elevations contrast with wildflower-filled alpine meadows and snowcapped peaks.
Take a break from the city and head to Ruby Beach and Rialto Beach. There's still lots to do: take a memorable drive along Hurricane Ridge, trek along Ozette Loop Hike, tour the pleasant surroundings at Sol Duc Falls, and take a peaceful walk through Olympic National Park.
