This dramatic coastline extends farther into the North Pacific than any other mainland point in the lower 48 states. Its winding route is beautiful year round, changing with the seasons. View rugged cliffs and thick forests, watch for oft-seen eagles, otters and gray whales. Visit the Joyce General Store and Depot Museum, Salt Creek Recreation Area with beach access and tide pools and fishing villages of Clallam Bay, Sekiu and Neah Bay, on the Makah Indian Reservation. Take a side trip to scenic Lake Ozette. Joyce This small town evolved from Port Crescent, a boom town that vied with Port Angeles in the late 1800s. An 1890 election named Port Angeles the county seat, thereby diminishing Port Crescent’s importance. Later the community moved to its present location, renamed as Joyce. The Joyce Depot Museum has displays from old Port Crescent days. The Joyce General Store celebrated its 100th birthday in 2011. Nearby Salt Creek Recreation Area and Freshwater Bay are popular camping and recreation sites.
