Romantic Beach Weekend Getaway in the Olympic Peninsula
By car from Seattle: The Olympic Peninsula is about three hours from Seattle. Take a Washington State Ferry from downtown Seattle to Bremerton. Or you can take the Edmonds Ferry to Kingston.
From Bremerton ferry dock: Once you've arrived, follow signs north to Port Townsend. You'll drive along Kitsap Way (310) to get out of Bremerton, then head north on Rte 3 (which becomes Rte. 104). Keep heading north for 30 miles until Rte. 104 branches off at Beaver Valley Rd. (State Route 19), for about 20 miles. Turn right onto State Route 20, which delivers you into downtown Port Townsend after about 5 minutes.
From Kingston ferry dock: Once you've arrived, get on Rte. 104, heading north for 15 miles until Rte. 104 branches off at Beaver Valley Rd. (State Route 19) for about 20 miles.Turn right onto State Route 20, which delivers you into downtown Port Townsend after about 5 minutes.
Once inside this Washington corner, you'll mainly stay close to 101, the Olympic Highway. Pack a GPS device or iPhone; you'll probably need it when driving the region's curving, twisty roads.
