    A historic port that whips up an art storm

    Port Townsend, on the northern tip of Washington's Olympic Peninsula, is probably most famous as the setting for the film "An Officer and a Gentleman". Get your Washington State adventure off to a roaring start by booking a Port Townsend vacation rental near its historic downtown. A National Historic Landmark District since 1977, Port Townsend's Victorian downtown stems from its 19th-century heyday as a major seaport. A maritime hub for artists, foodies, and boat builders, it hosts arts and music festivals throughout the year, including the annual blues and jazz festival.

Throughout the rest of the year, the arts community boasts a variety of fun events and festivals, including the quirky Centrum's Fiddle Tunes Festival. Book a Port Townsend vacation rental and say good-bye to cooking while on holiday; instead, dine out on fantastic seafood in one of the many independent restaurants on the waterfront, all washed down with some excellent local vintages from the Olympic Peninsula's award-winning wineries.

    Maritime movie magic

    With its strong maritime heritage, Port Townsend makes an attractive base on the Olympic Peninsula for a summer getaway, even for culture fans. The Fort Worden State Park is a former army base which featured in the iconic film "An Officer and a Gentleman", starring Richard Gere. Book a Port Townsend vacation rental in the historic downtown, and the Jefferson Museum of Art and History and its walking tours will be just a short stroll away. After dark, catch a performance at The Key City Public Theatre, one of the most active theaters on the Peninsula.

    No storms in this port, just hazy days and sunshine

    Port Townsend has a moderate climate with warm, dry summers and cool, damp winters. It stays humid all year because of the sea breezes and fog drifting in from the Juan de Fuca Strait. The number of vacationers swells up in the summer, so it's best to book your Port Townsend vacation rental early. Spring and fall are much quieter, but there's still plenty of sunshine to enjoy. Winter months are cold, but not freezing.

    Nature deserves a medal for the Olympic National Park

    Port Townsend has a prime spot overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca. If you want to venture farther, you can head an hour southwest of the Victorian seaport and find yourself in the Olympic National Park. The magnificent area famously slices through several ecosystems, from the glaciers of Mount Olympus and rainforests, to the ancient old-growth forests in the lowlands. There are resident cougars, black bears, and coyotes, but these are rarely spotted in the million-acre park. If you're after a mountain adventure, you can join the thousands of climbers and hikers who trek its mountain peaks, woodland trails, and rocky coastline.
