Take I-5 northbound to the first Longview/Long Beach exit—maybe 40 minutes later. After exiting I-5 at the Long Beach/Longview exit, keep to the left and loop back over freeway and proceed 2 miles or so to the 3rd Ave./Industrial Exit.
Turn left at the stop light, driving past Home Depot on your right & stay on highway through about four stop lights following the signs to Oregon Hwy 30. Get in left-hand lane. The last light is Oregon St., turn left, and proceed over the Lewis and Clark Bridge into Oregon, then exit to the right, on Highway 30, up the steep hill towards Clatskanie and Astoria.
Proceed for about an hour on Hwy 30 through Clatskanie and you will end up in Astoria, OR. Drive all the way through downtown Astoria and get in right lane and drive over the Astoria/Megler Bridge across Columbia River to the Washington side and the Long Beach Peninsula. Turn left off bridge and drive north on Hwy 101 (about 13 miles) to Long Beach. The best route to get to Long Beach off Hwy 101 is to note the bypass to short-cut Ilwaco, Alternate Rt. 101, across from the KOA Campground on the right side of Hwy 101. The exit will say Raymond/South Bend. So turn right and go until it ends in about one mile. Turn left at the end of the Alternate Route 101 shortcut and you will be heading due west. Proceed about four more miles to Long Beach.
Turn right at the flashing red light where 101 ends. You will now be on Hwy 103, also known as Pacific Way, the main drag through town. Drive about 1.6 miles north, through downtown Long Beach to 6th St. N, which is five blocks north of the second stop light. (Bolstad Avenue). Turn left on 6th North, go one block and turn right on Blvd. aka Ocean Beach Blvd and find 607 N. Ocean Beach Blvd. The banners will be flying! (The Yett House is at 601 Ocean Beach Blvd, on the corner of 6th and Ocean Beach Blvd. just south of the B&B, surrounded by white picket fence). It’s a 2.5 hour drive from Portland. In high traffic, stay one block west of Pacific going through town—it is much faster.
Most scenic, but longer route: Follow signs at Longview to Hwy 4 and proceed on the Washington side of Columbia River, go straight through Naselle, drive along the Willapa Bay and follow signs to Long Beach.
You will need a Discover Pass to go into the Washington State Parks.
To visit Washington State Parks- (and we have 5 on the Long Beach Peninsula), you will need a Discover Pass. $10/day or $30/year. Don’t forget yours if you have one!
