If you’re planning to drive around the Olympic Peninsula from Sequim west through Port Angeles and out toward Forks, you can plan your trip with the help of a very powerful online resource that Google offers. I use this all the time.
There are so many places to see, and as they say, so little time. One of the best ways to plan your trip is to pull up Google maps on your computer, and type in either Port Angeles or Forks, and then zoom out so you can see more of the Peninsula. Then in your Google maps options, go to the “More” button and check some of the boxes available. This will make videos and Wikipedia descriptions and other services show up on your Google map instantly showing you videos, photos, and descriptions of key places around the Olympic Peninsula. It’s really cool. La Push Beach is a nice place to hike to and picnic, if it isn’t raining. And, I guess this goes without saying since the movie Twilight was made out there, watch out for vampires!
