Port Townsend, Washington
On the northwestern corner of the Olympic Peninsula , this city offers delightful scenery and fascinating history. A season-long Centrum Summer Arts Festival makes summer an especially popular time to visit, but the early fall Wooden Boat Festival brings maritime enthusiasts in droves. Year-round parks include historic Fort Worden and lovely Chetzemoka Park . Blackberries Restaurant at Fort Worden presents terrific local cuisine. Ann Starrett Mansion and the F.W. Hastings House Old Consulate Inn offer quality accommodations. Architecture buffs enjoy the home tours, and the downtown area offers great shopping and entertainment. Bring plenty of film.
Right on the water ... quaint gift shops line this victorian towns' streets...great restaurants...especially love the restaurant at the Belmount Hotel and Fins. Harbor side Inn is my favorite motel. It is not fancy but is clean and has nice outdoor pool and spa. Fort Worden is worth the look around. Kids enjoy walking through old bunkers. Try kayaking if you are adventurous.
The best wine we have ever had in Washington came from Port Townsend. The Sorensen Cellers have a small store where you can taste their wine and purchase anything from wine glasses to wine books. They also provided us with the opportunity to see where the wine was stored and try a glass of 6 month old wine.
This was a fabulous expreience plus the drive around Port Townsend is spectacular. I would definitly recomend anyone who can to go and experience the views surounding this quaint but gorgeous part of Washington.
The town is beautiful and charming and you get curious as to how all of these beautiful Victorian buildings came to be in such a remote place. The answers to all of your questions can be found at the local downtown museum, which is in one of those cool brick buildings.
