The Olympic Peninsula features a vast array of landscapes, ranging from dramatic coasts to rainforests to mountains. Life Care Center of Port Townsend sits on the east coast of the peninsula, with easy access to everything the area has to offer. For a day trip, we suggest:
- The Olympic National Forest is a forest with geological variety, ranging from fjords to rainforests to canyons to beaches. The Olympic National Park surrounds the forest, showing the glacier-capped Olympic Mountains and meadows at the feet of the mountains.
- Fort Worden State Park was built in 1897 and formerly served as an Army training base. The park also has Victorian architecture, beaches, a lighthouse, a marine science center and an annual wooden boat festival, one of the largest of its kind.
- The Rose Theatre, built in 1907, holds film showings, concerts, shows and events. The theater prides itself in showing high-culture movies and hosts a few events during the Port Townsend Film Festival. Visitors can watch movies in a standard theater as well as a living room setting.
- The Port Townsend Visitors Center has information about the events, attractions, accommodations, dining and shopping in the city. Featuring a historic downtown with Victorian-style mansions, many of which are more than 100 years old, visitors of all tastes can find something to enjoy.
