Romantic Beach Weekend Getaway in the Olympic Peninsula
The Olympic Peninsula is a popular destination in spring, summer and fall. Port Townsend is a hub of music, art and other festivals year-round, but particularly so in summer, when it hosts a variety of week-long events at the nearby Centrum, which offers arts-focused workshops. Expect full hotel rooms and campgrounds, in addition to car-packed roads.
Some national park destinations close for certain parts of the year; check the hotel's website and book well in advance.
Winter brings rain and cool temps to the region, but it also drives down prices. Off-season hotel rooms are a steal, and sequestering yourself in a Port Townsend hotel over a rainy weekend can be charming. However, many Olympic National Park have limited access during this time of year, due to snow conditions.
