Port Townsend

As a little girl I loved going to Port Townsend for family events, seeing the Victorian homes and dreaming of moving there someday and opening a Bed and Breakfast. A few years ago we drove there on a spring Saturday and set out to find the best coffee and cafe in town. We walked up and down, back and forth, in and out of every coffee shop and restaurant and finally decided on a single room, second story pizzeria, which I cannot guarantee, but according to Google maps, and I am pretty certain is called "Waterfront Pizza". They had Trivial Pursuit cards on every table to play while you waited for your order. The coffee shop we HAD to sit in because of their cool barstools at the window, was Tyler Street Coffee House, which served Cafe Vita, one of our favorite roasters.  There is a great kitchen shop, and a completely organic store. Who knew clothes could be organic?? I didn't.
 Be sure to drive a few miles north to Fort Worden State Park to see Point Wilson Lighthouse and a West side view of the Sound.
 You can take a ferry across to Whidbey Island from the downtown.
