Small town on the peninsula

Port Townsend is a small little town up on the peninsula. There are many older, Victorian style mansions that were built around the turn of the 20th century that are an attraction for people to come. Some have turned into bed and breakfast inns where you can stay at. Others are accesible by tours. There is a thriving artist colony as well and it can be seen in the downton area, which is easily walkable. There is the Point Wilson Lighthouse located in the old Ford Worden (where they filmed Officer and a Gentlemen). Plus there are plenty of beaches to go and have some fun sifting through the sand and rock. You can also take a ferry boat to Victoria from Port Townsend
