Anyways, my 2cents is there is a little town called Moclips on the WA coast, that has a state park called Pacific State Park. Back right up to the ocean. We like it there.

Get online early, though, as reservations are tough...

As a matter of fact, most state park reservations in the summer should all be made in advance...

In Oregon, Cannon Beach and Seaside never disappoint.

Welcome to the Pacific Northwest!
Actually meant PT... lol.

I've lived in Western Washington on the Kitsap Penninsula since '84. It doesn't get any prettier than the Olympic Penninsula, or Western Washington for that matter, in the summer. Generally we get very little rain in July and no rain through August sometimes to the middle of October. It can get a little warm for a few weeks, into the 80's sometimes as high as 90 degrees. I would do 101 up the coast from Northern California all the way through the Olympic National Forrest. Bring your cameras. The scenery along the water can be breathtaking.

Take sweaters. It can get a bit nippy in the evenings especially on the water. Do the touristy stuff in Seattle. Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square and the waterfront and then get back to nature. Visit Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams and of course Mt. St Helens, or what's left of it. As for islands I'd visit San Juan Island and if you have your passport, Victoria BC, Vancouver Island. We usually get 8 months of gray skies and a seemingly constant drizzle. The four months of late Spring and Summer unreal. Enjoy your trip.

I almost forgot, be sure to take the obligatory ferry ride to Seattle. Of course the Victoria, or San Juan Island requires a ferry ride, but even though it's expensive the ride from Bremerton WA to Seattle is a one time ride you need to take. On a clear day you'll get some fantastic shots of the Seattle skyline. Western Washington on the Kitsap and Olympic Penninsula's give you a feeling of being on the fjords overlooking snowcapped mountains. Dry camp in the olympics for a few days if you enjoy that sort of thing. It does get misty though even in the Summer months.

Well, maybe not. Lots of times folks on the peninsula abbreviate things. PT= Port Townsend, PA = Port Angeles, PH = Port Hadlock, etc.

Plasma,...... Port Townsend is, among other things, an artsy sort of place, and there's a great little theater company there. We've attended several events. They'll be active through the summer, and also schedule one and two person dinner theater shows from time to time with a wonderful local restaurant. There's a great deal of local talent, some of whom are retired professionals who strongly anchor some very enjoyable productions. Check out www.keycitypublictheatre.org

We spent a few days in western Washington last September. We came down from Vancouver, BC to Seattle, then thru Olympia to the coast around Long Beach. We were there during the Rod Run; the town was full of old cars & trucks. I was foaming at the mouth the whole time! Absolutely beautiful, and the weather was great. When we left Long Beach, we traveled down US101 thru Oregon and as far south as San Francisco, before turning back inland and heading back to Texas. By the time we got home, it wasn't hot here.

Threw a party for my aunt years ago at the Inn at PH... Port Hadlock...
Not sure of its status now - but then the 2 story 2 bedroom, kitchen huge living area and patio was awesome.

Depending on when you come thru, you could always take a stop at our place in ID before going into WA or coming back from WA. We are about 3-1/2 hr from Spokane.

The Oregon coast is easier seen if you are driving south. Most all the view and pull offs are to the west so if you are traveling north, you have to cross traffic to get off and back on again. There are some wonderful places in the PNW and lots of them have been mentioned already.

That would put the ocean on the passenger side and give a better view and turn outs since you wouldn't have to cross traffic to get to them. Personally I'd skip Seattle but then I've seen it too many times anyway. The Hoh rain forest is good to. DD and her brood live in Sequim as do a lot of retired people due to the low rain amount and temperatures. Not much ocean view coming south in WA in that area as the road is inland. In OR the road pretty much goes the whole length.
