5. Stroll the Ilwaco Waterfront. Explore the beauty of the Port of Ilwaco! Stop in at Time Enough Books or Don Nisbett’s Art Gallery  for a thoughtful gift for your partner.

6. Catch a morning sunrise over the beautiful Columbia River. Start your day off right with an energizing sunrise over the Columbia! Take in the breathtaking beauty of the early morning light as it spills over the bridge and shines through the trees.
