Born and raised it's a beautiful little place that sits between the ocean and the mountains. Many outdoor adventures to be had right out your back door. Lots of local business owners who put back in to our community every day. Farmers market all year round. A short ferry ride to Victoria bc. Definitely a place worth seeing!

Small town that’s becoming more modern. Right next to the Olympic national park! And has a ferry that takes you right into metropolitan Victoria, Canada. Great access to old growth temperate rainforests, the pacific coast, the beaches off the strait of Juan de Fuca, and alpine mountains.
The Olympic Peninsula is beautiful, but Port Angeles is in rough shape. NICE people, but rampant unemployment, abandoned buildings, drugs, and homelessness. Victoria and Seattle are both well over two hours away, so little diversity. Lots of history and potential here and hope it does not turn into Sequim (which has become very "suburban," very "Yuppie," very just like every place else). It rains from October through May, and hard. We don't mind that, but many do.
