Destination: Port Ludlow

November/December 2015 | Washington Journey | By: Jeff Layton
Winters in the Pacific Northwest tend to offer two choices for area getaways: Head high to the mountains for snow, or swing low to the coast, where things rarely freeze. For those who choose the latter, Port Ludlow offers a splendid base from which to explore the dramatic effects of winter weather at sea level. Its location in a rain shadow provides frequent breaks from inclement weather, making it easy to discover the off-season highlights along nearby Hood Canal and other parts of the Olympic Peninsula. When winter downpours do arrive, its protected bay, home to a waterfront resort and 300-slip marina that seems straight off a jigsaw puzzle box, is the perfect place to unwind and soak up the atmosphere.

Seattle, WA: Naturally Romantic

Summer/Fall 2015 | Touring & Tasting – Pacific Northwest Magazine
It’s amazing that this natural wonderland lies in such close proximity to urban Seattle! Pack a picnic lunch and spend the day in the massive Olympic National Park, with glacier-carved lakes, waterfalls, campgrounds, 600-plus miles of hiking trails, and scenic views. The Olympic Peninsula’s Hoh Rainforest is literally dripping with romance and three loop trails. The Hall of Mosses Trail is our favorite. Port Townsend is a fun spot for restaurants and shopping. But at the west end of the Hood Canal Floating Bridge lies the piece de resistance! The charming town of Port Ludlow has a history dating back to the mid-1800s. Play golf at The Port Ludlow Golf Club, hike one of the trails, and stay at The Resort at Port Ludlow, where you can cozy up at The Fireside, the inn’s beautiful, award-winning restaurant.
