Traveling With Your Canine Companion

With two distinct Historical Districts, Port Townsend is a dog-friendly town.  Downtown along Water and Washington Streets, we have outdoor cafes for people-watching and many delightful shops for window-browsing.  Many of the Downtown merchants provide outdoor water bowls for thirsty pets along the sidewalks in warmer weather.  The area offers hiking trails, beaches and lovely Uptown neighborhoods for taking leisurely walks together while admiring the local flora and architecture.

Stop by the front desk to pick up a walking map highlighting dog-friendly areas/dog parks.
