Snowcapped mountains, ocean shores, and temperate rain forests await visitors to Olympic National Park, encompassing some 900,000 acres in the center of the Olympic Peninsula in northwest Washington. The sharp contrast in surroundings, unusual wildlife, and overall lack of commercialization make for a down-to-earth, back-to-basics vacation. Your family can venture into the misty rain forest, where Sitka spruce and Douglas fir loom over mossy footpaths; view majestic Mt. Olympus; explore tide pools on Pacific beaches; and see some outstanding scenery. This eTrail is one complete vacation written with families in mind. It’s loaded with exciting things to do, family-friendly places to lodge and dine, recommended side trips, local sources of information, and detailed travel directions.
