If you’re looking for some ocean time, the park is 1/2 hour drive to two of Washington’s premier ocean fronts which are vastly different. Westport on the south side of Gray’s Harbor is a fishing community with an active port as well as lots of tourist activity options including fresh seafood stores and restaurants. Ocean Shores is on the north side of Gray’s Harbor with sandy beaches and a historic town full of options for tourists. There are lots of seasonal activities. The popular razor clam is in season in Gray’s Harbor area when conditions permit – check out schedules and locations. Salmon fishing in the area rivers in season is also a great experience.
This historic building, erected in 1924, was designed with twenty-six rooms, with six bathrooms and four fireplaces. The Polsons lived in the mansion to 1965 when they left their Hoquiam home for Seattle. The house remains as a museum with exhibits like a replica logging company, Railroad camp, area photographic collections and more.
Built in 1928, Hoquiam’s 7th Street Theatre is one of the few remaining atmospheric-style theatres on the West Coast. The theatre’s unique interior is a simulated open-air playhouse and events include the showing of current movies, historic favorites and stage productions.
