One of the best things to do in Port Townsend is simply walk around and gaze at the old buildings taking you back to previous days of glory. There are guided walking tours available, which will give you some of the history of what you are seeing in great detail. You can also pick up a ‘Sidewalk Tour’ brochure for a more independent version. The buildings have all undergone many changes and seen many types of businesses come and go over the years. Today, Port Townsend is a very eclectic mix of artists, boaters, craftspeople and longtime residents which gives it a unique flavor.
