The Hama Hama Oyster Rama is a beach party in the world’s prettiest spot on Hood Canal, where the Robbins family has been farming bivalves since 1922. To eat: oysters (on the half shell, grilled, and fried), steamed clams, crab cakes, seafood soups, pulled pork sandwiches, and salads (if you must). Plus: local beer, cider, and wine. Also: low tide tours at 11 a.m., live music all day, and the Shuckathalon (!). It all benefits the area school district, and the official Beautiful Route from Seattle takes just two and a half hours. See you at the Rama! (Full info at, 11 am–6 pm, $10 entry, food and beverages extra)
