Port Townsend, WA
Just before US 101 North becomes US 101 West, take the turnoff that leads to Port Townsend, Washington. The Victorian town is one of the oldest in the state.
Port Townsend (or simply PT, for those in the know) is right on the water, near where the Strait of Juan de Fuca meets Puget Sound. The business district lines up along Water Street, which appropriately enough, is along the waterfront.
Haller Fountain stands at the foot of a long staircase (the Terrace Steps) which connects the upper and lower parts of the town. Climb the steps to reach many of PT's historic Victorian homes.
This is the Belmont Hotel, one of several historic inns in Port Townsend. I stayed in room #2 (the upstairs window just above the streetlight). More on that experience in just a moment.
PT offers plenty of simple yet trendy restaurants along Water Street. I enjoyed a burger at the Public House, just a short walk from the Belmont.
