Olympic Peninsula Area Attractions
Forks is the perfect place for sightseeing, and experiencing the natural wonders of the Olympic Peninsula’s west end. The Olympic Coast is a lightly developed landscape, ideal for endless exploration. You’ll feel the allure of the ocean, you’ll wonder at the spectacular scenery, abundant wildlife, dramatic forests and native heritage; making your visit to the northwestern most corner of the nation unforgettable. Visit these beautiful natural places, within half an hour of our inn: Sol Duc Hot Springs, Lake Crescent, Hoh Rain Forest, Rialto Beach on the Pacific Coast, LaPush Beach on the Pacific Coast.
Washington’s Olympic Peninsula also offers superb fly fishing for large native steelhead, salmon, sea run cutthroat and dolly varden. Most peninsula rivers flow from within the Olympic National Park, a designated world heritage site. This is one of the few places in the world where it’s still possible to fish all day in absolute seclusion.
