331 Things to Do – #117 Urban Adventuring

Stroll, shop, dine and drink through the Port Angeles’ walkable downtown and waterfront. Channel your inner urban adventurer for a fun day on the town!

Your urban explorer side may want to shop and stroll downtown Port Angeles searching for vintage treasures from one of many antiqueries. Maybe a new handbag from a boutique, or a handmade gift for a friend? Take a guided underground historical tour to hear the secrets of Port Angeles. Next, visit the Feiro Marine Life Center to gaze at a giant Pacific octopus. Save time for art spotting for sculptures and murals throughout downtown and along the waterfront. Then walk through the Fine Arts Center and Webster’s Woods Art Park for an outdoor art experience like no other. Have a couple of hours to spare? Get a glimpse of Port Angeles’ past and some of our juicy secrets with a guided downtown Heritage Underground Tour. During the month of October, you can reserve a special haunted underground tour!

Your foodie side is eager to get a taste of Port Angeles by sampling fresh seafood. Pick up some in-season healthy snacks from local farms to fuel your day from the year-round farmers market every Saturday, then sip heritage wine in a 125 year-old barn followed by gourmet burgers and beer for a casual dinner out.
