South Bend and Raymond, Washington, aren’t on the way to anywhere (unless you’re heading to Long Beach or Astoria for some oceanfront R&R). You have to want to come here. You have to like rural “unyupppified” communities with regional pride, history, and art.
You have to appreciate blue herons and outdoor sculpture. A taste for fresh oysters might come in handy, too. Surface: Asphalt. Location: between Raymond and South Bend, in Pacific County.
