Drive Through History

The Long Beach Peninsula is packed to the breakers with awesome history and stunning surrounds to match, and if you're looking for a way to get your fill of both—in a relatively short period of time—you'll do well to look into taking the Clamshell Railroad Driving Tour. A self-guided tour that takes you from Lewis and Clark National Park all 27 miles north to Nachotta, you'll be able to soak in the amazing sights and put them in historical context—all at your own pace. So whether you're looking to lolligag and make this an all day event or you're not looking to do much more than roll down your window for a quick photo on the trot, the Clamshell Railroad Driving Tour should be an awesome addition to your Long Beach Peninsula trip pan. Note that you can start by following signs from the Ilwaco Boat Basin!
