Directions to Washington State


The state is located in the extreme northwest corner of the contiguous United States. It is bordered by Oregon to the south, Idaho to the east and the Canadian Province of British Columbia to the north. The western side of the state is bordered by the Pacific Ocean.

DRIVING: All areas of the state can be reached by major Interstates or good state roads. Running north-south through the western part of the state is Interstate 5 which comes from Oregon and continues up to British Columbia where it becomes Canadian Highway 99. Another north-south route is Interstate 82 from Hermiston, Oregon, up through the tri-cities of Pasco, Richland and Kennewick. It continues north through Yakima eventually becoming Highway 97 and crossing Wenatchee, Chelan and the Okanogan Valley before reaching Canada. Interstate 90 runs east-west in the almost center of the state coming from Idaho, through Spokane in Eastern Washington and terminating in Seattle to the west. Other east-west highways are Highway 12 in the southern part of the state and Highway 2 in the northern part.

FLYING: There are major international airports in the Seattle Tacoma area (Western Washington) and Spokane in eastern Washington. Access to the state is also easy from Portland International in Portland, Oregon, just across the river from Vancouver, Washington (not Vancouver, BC) in the southern part of the state and from Vancouver, BC just across the border from Blaine and Bellingham, Washington in the northern region of the state. There are also jet serviced airports in Wenatchee, Yakima and the Tri-Cities.

RAIL: Amtrak provides passenger rail service north-south through Seattle-Tacoma and east-west through Spokane to Seattle.

Directions to this property

There are two routes you might take to Pacific Beach that part ways at Hoquiam. Highway 109 follows the Grays Harbor shoreline and reaches the ocean at the entrance to Ocean Shores - the largest coastal community. Highway 109 then turns north along the ocean. The drive between Copalis Beach and Pacific Beach is very lovely. If you don't drive this route on your first approach to Pacific Beach, you should find another time for this drive.

The shorter distance between Hoquiam and Pacific Beach is the inland route: follow highway 101 north out of Hoquiam, turn left on Ocean Beach Road - which is well-marked, and you will first reach the coast right at Pacific Beach. Continue straight ahead onto Main Street to reach the town and the beach house.
