From the Olympic Mountains to the pristine waters of Hood Canal, the location is one of exquisite beauty, allowing access to a vast number of recreational activities. Although some may dispute that pub crawling or beer tasting should be categorized as recreational activities, those who question may change their minds after experiencing the “liquid gold” found in this area.
