Historic Port Townsend, Washington
Don’t miss Fort Worden State Park….. Fort Worden was built in 1902, and along with Fort Flagler and Fort Casey/Fort Ebey was known as part of the “Triangle of Fire”, established to help protect the entrance to Puget Sound. You may venture inside the concrete bunkers, to get a feel for how it must have been during this historical time, but bring your flashlight, as it’s pitch black inside! www.fortworden.org
Walking along the sandy beach to the Point Wilson Lighthouse, you can look across the water to Whidbey Island, and the San Juan Islands in the distance.
All ships entering and leaving the Puget Sound, pass right past Port Townsend, WA., so you will see lots of marine traffic, as 10,000 freighters use the shipping channel each year, along with Cruise Ships and U.S. Navy vessels.
In the early days of Washington State many ships made port in Port Townsend to take advantage of our deep water port but more importantly all the brothels and bars on the downtown waterfront.
Shopping, Fine Dining, Beaches
Guests are welcome to relax in our garden, or on the spacious covered front porch in our “Cracker Barrel” rocking chairs. Some other activities you might enjoy during your visit include wine tasting, fine dining on “northwest cuisine”, festivals, biking, hiking and whale watching! Local shops have everything from gift items to antiques for you to browse and enjoy. Educational opportunities abound through Centrum, at Fort Worden as well.
