Visit Port Townsend, Washington’s Victorian Seaport and Arts Community.
Part of our Historic Downtown is the old Quincy Street Ferry Dock. This ferry was privately owned for years. It gave you access to Whidbey Island by way of Coupeville. Now the ferry service is an extension of Highway 20 now operated by the Washington State Ferries. Do not miss the opportunity to pack a picnic lunch and walk on the ferry. Just on the other side is Fort Casey State Park. It was built in about 1902 to protect the entrance to Puget Sound. Take time to see the old concrete bunkers and gun emplacements. Enjoy your lunch and take in the views of Puget Sound, Port Townsend Bay and the Olympic Mountains.
