Mileage/Estimated drive time
96 miles, 2 hours, 10 minutes

Go clamming, crabbing, fishing and hiking in this scenic region, located between routes 101and 103. You'll never look at the Pacific Northwest the same after this coastal adventure.

1) Ilwaco
Starting point

On the Long Beach Peninsula, Ilwaco offers plenty of maritime lore and history, with two historic and fully functional lighthouses, Cape Disappointment (1856) and the North Head (1898). Walk the boardwalks or stroll the sandy beaches of Cape Disappointment State Park. Watch a whale spout or visit the Lewis and Clark Interpretative Center.

2) Raymond
47 miles, 58 minutes

Named after the town's first postmaster, Raymond is the gateway to the majestic and productive Willapa River and Bay. Visit one of the many shellfish farms located on Willapa Bay, buy oysters directly from the growers and enjoy those luscious treasures raw straight from the shell or lightly grilled over an open campfire.

3) Copalis
50 miles, 1 hour, 11 minutes

Dig for Washington's revered razor clams, fly a kite, watch the waves during a storm, or sit and read a book on the sandy expansive beaches of laid back Copalis.
