Oops...Port Townsend, NOT Port Washington

by irvbur

Is the ferry terminal within walking distance (2 miles)to "touristy" part of Port Townsend?

Re: Oops...Port Townsend, NOT Port Washington

by goodfish

Yes. The terminal is right downtown. The only thing it isn't close to is the old residential section at the top of the bluff but it's possible you could catch a public bus up there. I'll see what I can find on that if you're interested? The view from up there is super and if you're into old houses, it's a great place for a stroll.

Downtown is really nice - lots of shops, galleries, restaurants, historic old buildings and nice waterfront.

Are you coming from Keystone or going to Keystone from there?

Re: Oops...Port Townsend, NOT Port Washington

I agree completely with goodfish, and everything else I need to say was in the previous post under the Port Washington subject line.

About a year and a half ago, a huge number of the oldest Washington State Ferries were taken out of service due to hull cracks. These were not things that were completely unfixable, but Washington State Ferries decided it was time to push for some new ships anyway. Politically, it was much easier for them to temporarily remove things from service and create congestion problems rather than try to get funding to replace operating ships.

The reason this is relevant is that last I was up in Port Townsend, the Keystone to Port Townsend service was being operated by a tiny ship leased from Pierce County ferries, and not even a Washington State Ferries boat. At least one of the new ships is now completed and undergoing sea tests, but as far as I know it hasn't entered service yet. Capacity there in Port Townsend is therefore quite limited compared to what should be there, and what was there in past years.

Therefore, in my opinion, it is easier to use this ferry as a walk-on passenger right now than if you have your vehicle with you. Island Transit operates bus service to the Keystone side of the ferry, and while it is a somewhat long trip it is possible to get to Keystone using a series of public transit routes. I have never done this, but I have done the research and may try this trip sometime in the next few weeks.

Don't miss Pioneer Square for great art, gifts and history. Fresh, fresh Seafood and exuberence.

by Deborah_Bagg

See the city by foot. Over the last five years, the downtown area has had a major make-over. Every year big business and buildings move in and make Seattle more modern and beautiful. One can do a lot of financial damage here. We boast a Nike Town, Nordstrom, Planet Hollywood, Eddie Bauer, and hundreds of other big and small shops. Check out some of the new specialty shops in the Belltown area, or see a local band perform in Pioneer Square. When I am away from home, I mostly miss the cool weather and awesome food. You can get any kind of food here, and I mean any kind. Thai is popular here, as is our great seafood. If you love seafood, don't leave town without having some Alaskan Halibut or Salmon.

Space Needle

by jujub

The Space Needle has a great view from its Observation Deck, with interesting history and factoids on its walls, as well as a very eager, friendly and knowledgeable staff ready to answer any questions that you might have. If you go on a clear day, you will be able to see Mt. Rainier. There are complimentary telescopes on the deck, for your magnifying viewing pleasures.

There is a restaurant on the Needle, and reservations are highly recommended. average price for a main course: $35 bucks.

Built in 1962, the Space Needle served as the symbol of that year's World's Fair.  It has since become the symbol of Seattle, and one of the most recognizable structures in the world.  The privately owned Space Needle is managed by the Space Needle Corporation. --> that means no discount for students, museum employees, etc, etc, etc.

Adult ticket costs $12.50.

Seattle Music Scene: Listen to KEXP 90.3FM

by akilgore42

Seattle is well-known for it's local indie music scene, which has produced many artists that go on to achieve greater fame on a national or international level. For this reason, true Seattleites listen to KEXP 90.3FM in order to discover new music, keep informed of local concert events, and avoid the shlock of commercial radio. The station is listener supported, meaning it is operated by donations from the community rather than Clearchannel or annoying commercials. The DJ's are knowledgeable, friendly and funny. Local artists are heavily promoted, but the DJ's also strive to educate listeners about current trends or legendary artists by playing an eclectic mix of indie rock, blues, underground hip hop, world music, electronica and folk music from beyond the Northwest. If you hear something you like, note the time and check the detailed playlist they post online. I've discovered some of my favorite artists that way. Again, all of this is achieved without annoying commercials or obnoxious shock DJ's. Once you discover it, you will not want to listen to any other radio station again! So turn your dial to 90.3FM as you drive into Seattle, or listen online at for an authentic experience of Seattle.
