THE ADVENTURE: See as much of Olympic National Park’s 6,000-foot mountains as possible with a steep three-mile hike through shoulder-high ferns and old-growth forest to Wagonwheel Lake. The lake itself is small, but schlep another half-mile to the ridge above and you’ll be rewarded with views of several immediate peaks.

THE MEAL: The Hama Hama Seafood and Shellfish Store—a funky shop at the eastern border of the Olympic Peninsula—sells shellfish to high-end restaurants like New York City’s Grand Central Oyster Bar. Buy a dozen of the farm’s sweet, creamy namesake oysters or slightly salty Blue Pools ($7–$13) and wash them down with a Hood Canal Agate Pass Amber on the beach while you gawk at eagles overhead and the Olympic Mountains in the distance.
