Do you have family or friends in the Aberdeen area you’d like to visit? Or are you just looking for an adventure? Twin Transit can help you get there. Simply hop on board the Green Line from Centralia to Olympia at the Mellen Street e-Transit Station. The Green Line is an express route, taking around 40 minutes in total. You will stop once at the Tumwater Transit Center near the L&I building and then continue to the Olympia Transit Center. The Green Line runs every 90 minutes, from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday (weekdays only). The trip costs $4 per day or $40 per month.
Twin Transit drivers take a lunch break from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., so be sure to consider that when planning your journey.
Once at the Olympia Transit Center, take a quick one-minute walk around the corner to the intersection of Washington and Olympia Streets. Your connecting bus route stop is operated by Grays Harbor Transit, so keep an eye out for their sign. From here, you’ll catch the Yellow Line #40 bus labeled “Harrison and Division Westbound.” The cost is an affordable $2. This segment of your trip will take you about 90 minutes to arrive at the Aberdeen Transit Center. Altogether, your journey from Centralia to Aberdeen will take just around two hours and will allow you to relax while skilled drivers manage the driving.
Once you arrive in Aberdeen, grab a bite at Ocean Palace Restaurant for mouth-watering Cantonese and Mandarin Style dishes. For fresh seafood, Breakwater Seafood & Chowder House offers lunch and dinner plus a wide selection of fresh local seafood for purchase. An Aberdeen mainstay, Duffy’s is a local favorite for home-style cooking in large portions.
Or you can pick up some to-go food and have a picnic at the Morrison Riverfront Park, where you’ll enjoy the wildlife along the Chehalis River. You may even get to see Lady Washington docked. This replica of a 1787 ship has starred in several Hollywood blockbusters, including “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.”
Walk off your lunch by heading over to the Kurt Cobain Riverfront Park and find out more about the legendary musical figure who was raised in Aberdeen.
