If you ever feel the urge to visit Port Townsend, WA, don't even bother. Never heard of the place? I'm not surprised. It's a quiet town on Puget Sound about 2 hours away from Seattle. A couple weeks back I went there with my boyfriend's family so they could scope out vacation homes in the area. I'm not sure what kind of vacation home they had in mind, but I was thinking something some place warm, near a body of water, and with lots to do nearby. Port Townsend has only one of those things. The body of water, obviously.
I don't want to sound like a total bitch, so I will say this. The town has lots of beautiful Victorian homes and buildings. But that's not enough to keep me coming back every year. You know where I would visit every year? Maui. I wish there was a way to convince my boyfriend's parents to get a vacation home there!
