Surfers? Check. History nerds? Check. Wine lovers? CHECK!

Situated in northwest Washington and just across the Puget Sound from Seattle, the Olympic Peninsula boasts an exceptionally diverse terrain packed into a surprisingly compact geographic area. From mornings on the beach by the Pacific Ocean to afternoons spent hiking through the Olympic National Park, it's nearly impossible to guess where your day might take you. Thanks to plenty of local museums and historical sights, paired with a burgeoning wine region, we're not exaggerating when we tell you: you'll find something for everyone staying in your Olympic Peninsula vacation rental.

Note to self: find out if surfers still say "hang ten"

Beach lovers, rest assured. You'll be well taken care of on the Olympic Peninsula... assuming you take your sunbathing with a side of adventure. Go sea kayaking, fishing, or sailing in the Pacific, or book a surf lesson and hang ten with the best of 'em. If that's not your speed, kayaking, hiking or cycling are also popular ways to see the sights. Speaking of sights, keep your eagle eyes peeled for primo bird-watching, and channel your inner explorer as your hunt for caves, look for waterfalls, or hunt for the perfect picnic spot.

The Olympic National Park? That's for the birds!

With over 40,000 acres, it's impossible to see all of Olympic National Park, but we dare you to try. Animal lovers will feel at home, particularly in the The Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge Center, which features over 250 types of birds and a variety of animals. Culture vultures can leave the birders to their eagle-spotting and head indoors to the Jefferson Art & History Museum, or the Port Townsend Marine Science Centre and Natural History Museum. Visit the Rothschild House and learn about the former inhabitants, or explore the budding wine scene throughout the region.

There's no such thing as bad weather, just bad gear

Unlike the rest of Washington, winters in the Olympic Peninsula are known to be mild, with an average high hovering around 45-50F. Summers are pleasant, with the mercury usually settling in between 60 and 70F. May through September is comparatively dry, with bright summer days rolling seamlessly into colorful fall afternoons. Rain can always be expected, even if it doesn't last too long, and October through April brings the wettest weather - it's probably best not to leave your rainboots and umbrella in your Olympic Peninsula vacation rental.

From sunrise over the mountains to sunset on the beach

With Olympic Pensinsula's unique location, you can kickstart your day with sunrise over the mountains, and end it with sunset on the beach. Fill the time in between looking for wildflowers in the national park, or hunting for the best lake to take a dip. Birders should keep their eyes peeled for eagles soaring through the sky or nesting high above, while others may be more interested in spying on the deer that populate the area. Cap it off with an Olympic Peninsula vacation rental with a view, and wonder if you really have to leave.
