About the Community
Port Townsend has been named as one of the coolest small towns in America ... with good reason. There are festivals almost every weekend, endless recreational/hiking/skiing/sailing activities, great places to eat, and a strong and vibrant community feel. National Geographic calls Port Townsend "one of the most sophisticated places west of Seattle" and we continue to receive awards year after year, such as 2015 Best Small Towns in America (Smithsonian Magazine), 50 Safest Cities in Washington (Safewise.com), and 16 Best Places to Live in the US in 2015 (nearby Port Angeles by Outdoors Magazine).
