There was one cool sounding pub in Port Angeles just outside the park but we had spent four days hitting many brewpubs in Seattle prior to coming to Olympic and we knew we would do another four on our return so we didn't feel pressed to check it out.
Camping in the park is so nice it's a shame not to spend some time at your site. It's tough to beat sitting in the middle of the rainforest with a top notch beer in your hand and we had a cooler full of those. We also had many nights in Olympic's vast backcountry and this was the serenity we were seeking. Civilization is something we have all the time. When we were near the coast, we made sure to get to the beach for sunset. They are pretty spectacular on the Olympic Peninsula. Rialto was very convenient to our Mora Campground spot.
Dress Code: Wear something warm. Even if you were lucky enough to not need it during the day, when the sun goes down so does the temperature.
