The Olympic Peninsula is just bounding with places to see. Historical Port Townsend is a 20 minute drive and Port Angeles is an hour and 15 minute drive from your vacation home. From Port Angles, drive up to Olympic National Park to hike and enjoy the view from Hurricane Ridge high in the Olympic mountains looking north across the Strait of Juan de Fuca at Vancouver Island, Canada and the Canadian city of Victoria. Take the ferry from Port Angeles across the Strait of Juan de Fuca to Victoria, BC. In the spring, summer and fall, visit the famous Buchart Gardens in Victoria or have high tea at the Empress Hotel. If you want to make a several day trip, continue on to Vancouver via Canadian ferry system, then drive south back to the United States and south on Whidbey Island and return on the ferry to Port Townsend.
The unique Hoh Rain Forest which experiences the greatest rainfall in the United States is located on the western shore of the Olympic peninsula. Don't worry, that's on the other side of the mountains, yet only two and a half hours away. The Getaway is located on the drier side of the mountains.
Or if your fancy suits you, take a boat trip from Port Townsend, Victoria or San Juan Island to see the orca whales play in the sound. Get current information on them from the whale watching home page. If golf is your thing, click here to read about the Port Ludlow course.
