Sitting on the easterly tip of Grays Harbor , the twin cities Aberdeen and Hoquiamare separated only by the Hoquiam River. Primarily working-class mill towns, they offer weary peninsula and coast travelers a good opportunity to gas up, fill up, and catch some zzz’s before hitting the road again. If you stop, be sure to check out the historical sights around town, particularly the Grays Harbor Seaport.
Aberdeen and Hoquiam are well served by Grays Harbor Transit (360/532-2770 or 800/562-9730, www.ghtransit.com ). Buses take you throughout the county seven days a week, including Lake Quinault , Westport , Ocean Shores , and even east to Olympia .
