With its maritime heritage, artist spirit, and a touch of urban chic, Port Townsend is an easily accessible base camp to the Olympic Peninsula and beyond. Whether on land or sea; indoors or outdoors – Port Townsend has activities for every taste.
Situated on a Peninsula with western views to towards the Olympic Mountains and the Strait of Juan de Fuca – sunsets in Port Townsend can be wondrous things indeed.
The Victorian Society in America Northwest Chapter’s annual Holiday Homes Tour takes place December 14th from 1-5pm. Come tour the splendid Victorian homes and enjoy holiday treats amidst seasonal entertainments.
This year’s Holiday Homes Tour features three of Port Townsend’s finest:
Enjoy the holiday lights in downtown Port Townsend and then take a cruise to Seattle on December 21 or 23 with Puget Sound Express to join the Christmas Ship Parade of lights.
On board the Glacier Spirit, you’ll enjoy warm soup with fresh baked bread while enjoying Christmas carols and great company. Once in Seattle, PSE joins the Parade by the waterfront soaking up the sights and sounds of the choir singing from the ‘Christmas Ship.’
