Port Angeles – The Authentic Northwest!

Seniors are welcome to Port Angeles, Washington, the activity center of the North Olympic Peninsula and the seat of government for Clallam County. The city’s home page is loaded with Olympic Peninsula Links of every nature. You’ll have a good idea of what to expect as you explore in detail the Outside Resources. They advertise… A Million Acre Park just filled with hiking trails that senior hikers will enjoy. That park of course is the Olympic Forest. The Salt Creek Recreation area is a big draw for senior visitors from across the globe.

Let’s start off with a bevy of photos to learn more about Port Angeles. The ferries are an important part of life at Port Angeles. Wikipedia is always an excellent resource for information of all kinds. The estimated population runs right at 70,000+ and Port Angeles is just south of the Canadian border of British Columbia. TripAdvisor has planned a nice vacation for you including hotels, B&Bs and major attractions.

Visitors will find classic wineries like Olympic Cellars and Camaraderie Cellars for wine tasting. While this is an ad for the Port Angeles Inn, the photos are very nice. Hey, maybe jump on board the Prince of Whales and go whale watching. Explore the Salt Creek Recreation area, a big draw for senior visitors from across the globe. 

Seniors Find Victoria Nearby

The Butchart Gardens are close by in Victoria British Columbia and this site has a map and guide to help senior visitors find your away around. Fodor’s ranks it right up there with the finest and notes that it is one of only two 3-Star attractions in Victoria. So shrink this map down little by little to see how easy it is to get to Victoria.

Maybe take a ferry up through the San Juan Islands to Victoria. This trip was memorable for me years back.  The many islands are covered with beautiful pine trees. You will enjoy orcas galore, the crystal clear water, tons of birdlife, a plethora of photo opportunities and finally you will arrive at Victoria.  It’s almost a “must” for adventurous seniors.

I leave you today with several videos that are guaranteed to catch your attention in and around Port Angeles.  And Virtual Tourist has some good information for senior visitors of Things to See and Do. These seven maps are fun and well done, plus on this page, you can download the Port Angeles Visitor Guide and send for a Free Travel Planner.

Clallam County is ready to welcome senior citizens with open arms. A little weather info is always nice up this direction. So be prepared, as you know, it rains quite a bit in Washington State and here’s what it’s doing today.

Enjoy the Great Authentic Northwest at Port Angeles. jeb
