Steel sculptures of wildlife, American Indians and loggers greet visitors in Raymond, known as the gateway to Willapa Bay. Tucked amid verdant forests, the city attracts outdoor adventures, road-trippers and those seeking a tranquil hideaway.
Raymond is situated along Highway 101 or the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway, which cruises around the Olympic Peninsula and down the Pacific Coast. Learn the history of the former lumber-mill town, established in 1907, at the Willapa Seaport Museum and Northwest Carriage Museum.
The Willapa River is a favorite paddling spot for kayakers, while Riverfront Park is a prime spot for strolling, picnicking and admiring river views.
