Here are some of our favorite things, and places to eat, near or in Olympic National Park
In the Sequim area:

  • Sequim Alderwood Bistro (only open Thurs-Sat) 139 W Alder St, Sequim, WA 98382  – Recommended by local guides, but we didn’t have a chance to try.

  • Country Aire Natural Foods Market 200 W 1st St, Port Angeles, WA 98362 Recommended by local guides, but we didn’t have a chance to try.

While in Port Angeles area, we bought some fresh Dungeness Crabs, and cooked them up for a feast! I don’t remember where we bought them, but here’s a tip from Kaleberg, a destination expert on tripadvisor: “If you really want great seafood, call Preston at Wild West Foods, 206 499 0175, and ask him if he will be bringing anything to the Port Angeles Farmers’ Market or to Country Aire Grocery in Port Angeles during your visit. His fish is the real deal: fresh, local, pristine.”

Backyard S’mores:
DIY : Graham Crackers, Chocolate, Marsmallows + Fire
In the Lake Quinault Area:
  • Salmon House: All the fish entrees were tasty. The kids enjoyed their meals.  The smoked salmon was the highlight.
