The highway is the most common way to reach Neah Bay, on the western tip of the north coast of Washington. The closest international airport is SeaTac in Seattle. Rail travel was popular between Port Angeles and Port Townsend in the 1920’s though Neah Bay was never serviced by rail and there are no longer any trains operating on the Olympic Peninsula.
