Port Angeles is the county seat of Clallam County and the largest city on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington (state).


Port Angeles & Ediz Hook

With a population of 19,000, Port Angeles is regarded as the "Center of it All" for the Olympic Peninsula. It's a great place to start for a day trip to Hurricane Ridge or a vacation to explore all of the Olympic National Park. Outdoor sports like kayaking, biking or hiking are very popular. Many quaint shops attract shoppers downtown and the expansive waterfront provides relaxation. With ferries coming and going all day, Port Angeles is the departure point for a trip to Victoria (British Columbia). Beautiful Pacific beaches are nearby and the lavender fields and berry farms of Sequim beckon all summer. Port Angeles is the place to be when it comes to experiencing all that the Olympic Peninsula has to offer.
