Really quaint and quiet as we were there right before the season starts. Cute shops, restaurants and a really nice place to stroll.

We went to the Port of Ilwaco Boardwalk. The area has a marina, restaurants, fishing and boat charters, art galleries, some cafes and restaurants. One can also purchase fresh seafood. There is also some places to stay. Its a pretty area.

Spent the night at the Salt Hotel on the boardwalk. A great little bare bones, clean, comfortable room.We didn't have time for much exploring and kind of regret that. On one of the Trip Advisor forms I was advised I wouldn't find much in Ilwaco....More
