    We did an early morning drive to this place. It opens at 10am. From the roadside, this is the real deal -- actual former plant with buildings intact. The view of the surroundings is lovely. Worth a quick drive out of the way to see this.

    We love visiting North Pacific Cannery each year. The site and location are majestic and I always learn new things each time I take the guided tours. Additionally, the restoration work over the past handful of years has been a fascinating transformation to save this historical site. Each time we go out there are new pieces of the puzzle that have been safely and accurately restored.
