Options aren’t scarce when you visit Port Angeles, in the heart of the Olympic Peninsula. Whether your interest is kayaking, wine tasting, antiquing, eating or just spending time on the beautiful beaches, Port Angeles has something for every traveler. Ride your bike along Discovery Trail, a waterfront trail that stretches from the west end of Port Angeles into Port Townsend. Taste locally grown food at the farmers markets. Enjoy the water view from Francis Street Park. Or, explore the Fine Arts Center, which features works by more than 500 Northwest artists.
Port Angeles is also the gateway to one of Washington’s most popular natural spaces, the Olympic National Park and Hurricane Ridge, conveniently located 17 miles from downtown. Additionally, Port Angeles is also home to several unique, boutique style wineries.
No matter what time of year you plan to visit the city, the abundance of community events and local attractions draw visitors from far and wide.
