The small town of La Push, Washington, is located a short drive west of Forks. It sits on the Pacific Ocean and within the Quileute Nation. The small town features resorts and a marina, and all businesses are owned by the tribe. La Push is also mentioned in the Twilight series.
We stopped in La Push between visiting two beaches that are part of Olympic National Park, Second Beach and Rialto Beach. It was a windy and rainy day, so we didn’t see much other than First Beach, which is located right along the town. James Island is just offshore.
River’s Edge Restaurant
The main reason for our visit was to grab breakfast at River’s Edge Restaurant. This cozy place located at the mouth of the Quillayute River has great food and friendly service.
I had eggs and French toast while Marisol had a skillet. We were both very happy with our meals, and the price was reasonable.
Lonesome Creek Store
We also stopped at the Lonesome Creek Store to stock up on snacks for our hikes. It’s located right before the entrance to the small town.
