With a deep maritime heritage, Port Townsend is one of only three Victorian Seaports in the U.S. A robust working waterfront, Port Townsend has two marinas at either end of town, and a beautiful, newly constructed Maritime Center at the base of Water Street. An imminently walkable town, hiking and biking trails intersect the city making it an attractive recreational destination. A meander to Fort Worden State Park is a must: In addition to housing the remarkable Point Wilson Lighthouse, Fort Worden also hosts a variety of culturally based events, workshops and performances; as well as a Writer's Conference--part of the Port Townsend arts scene since 1974.

There is one restaurant--the Fountain Cafe--that seems to get consistent reviews (I've eaten there and can attest to the fact that while not a culinary marvel, it is respectably good.) As to accommodations, the only downside to a town with such a rich Victorian history is that many of the hotels and B & Bs are a bit overly chintz-ed for my taste. In perusing the list of places to stay, the one that seemed the most spare and elegant was Ravenscroft Inn.
